I believe this to be the case.  Also, call graphs in C++ are much harder to
analyze, due to the complicated name lookup and overload resolution
semantics; to handle them in your browser, you basically need to implement
a large chunk of the C++ frontend.  The obvious solution is to use the
pre-existing frontend.
