cxx is a very simple support library that is useful if you do not want
to include the whole libstdc++, for example, because it is not yet
available (libstdc++ also has build requirements) or you want to have
something tiny etc. However, there's also no strong technical pro/cons
for all cases, sometimes it's just taste or similar.
