I think that the joke is funnier if you interpret the "0x" as the hexadecimal prefix in C and, well, C++; so "0xA" is "10" in legal C. Therefore decimal "C++09" is followed by hexadecimal "C++0xA".

But 0 as a prefix means octal, so 09 is actually an illegal constant. :-(

Well then, fools were we to expect that an illegal C++09 would ever be released!
