I already did it. I built everything in src into on library. Then I link the 
library with different applications (for different testing) all inspired from

It don't think adding C++ stuff to the bluetooth stack will be on any help. I 
think the first thing to do is clean it up so that it becomes more robust and 
portable, and keep it in C for simplicity, efficiency, and portability (the 
low level of complexity of the stack doesn't require (on my humble opinion) 
to go to C++). We are far from a reliable bluetooth stack today.
