Hello and welcome to the "freeglut" community.
I've been away from my keyboard for a week and thus haven't have a chance to weigh in earlier. I'm probably the closest you will find to a pure "freeglut" developer since my primary "freeglut" application was retired earlier this year. I'm still available for questions and upgrades on a limited basis, though.
You've already gotten several responses to your initial comments. There isn't a lot of development work going on because the library has been mostly developed by now. Other people have already answered the question about a C++ interface, and I will largely concur with their answers.
If you have any suggestions about a "readme" addition regarding where to look when a bug manifests itself I am certainly open to suggestions.

Subject: [Freeglut-developer] freeglut API from a new user's perspective
I'm a new freeglut user with a multi-window problem, which I may post about shortly. Meanwhile below are three general observations, meant to generate constructive dialog not criticize the freeglut concept or its originators. (I'm a freeglut user, after all, and chose it over alternatives because of its attractive features and open source.)
