That is non argument: RMS has not not contributed any executable
code for GCC, and even less the C++ front-end, for YEARS now.
What does that have to do with expressing philosophical beliefs about how
software development should be done?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

But, in this case the users of C++ would be the GCC developers.
Those are the ones directly suffering the handcuffs.
I wouldn't generalize things that broadly -- not everyone sees C++ in a positive light. Personally I see things in C++ I like, but I also see things in C++ (and more specifically how it's commonly used) that I think is horribly bad.
