Replace __BEGIN_DECLS with

	#ifdef __cplusplus
	extern "C" {

and replace __END_DECLS with

	#ifdef __cplusplus

?  Perhaps a bit uglier, but more easily portable, and it makes it a bit more obvious what's actually being done.

(That's the solution used by two code bases I work on - libpcap and Wireshark.)--
