Oh -- that wasn't obvious to me! :-) I'd actually rather it wasn't a
new front end; reducing the number of executables rather than increasing
them was where I was hoping to go: one combined

However, the "if (OBJECTIVE_CPLUSPLUS)" bits in the C++ front end will
still add to the complexity; that's why I want to see the specs that
tell me what (for example) the new overload rules are. Otherwise, I
won't be able to make changes to the overloading code with confidence.
