As an aside, for the C/C++ purists amongst us, my understanding is that when we initiate a compilation, the IDE slips in a "main" function while we aren't looking.

Are you saying that the first step is to interpret the code into C and then compile it? Unless that step is very well handled, I can imagine the C compiler rejecting something and providing a cryptic reponse which would floor the beginners.
