Really?  I was in that particular boat at one point in my career.   I typed
extern "C" { ............ } a lot.  No big deal.

Similarly, as a JS developer, both front and back end, I have figured out
how to transition my projects from ES5 to ES6 in the most efficient way
possible: I have done absolutely nothing, and they continue to work
perfectly.  In fact, I have ES3 code still running in the wild.....
