I have made Gengtype changes to support methods in structs/classes,
and other minor changes, and have modified latest 4.7 parser.c to
class'ize cp_parser and cp_lexer. I got operators (new) parsing, but
bumped into problems with the gengtype handwritten parser with regard
to constructors. So am currently working on a new gengtype frontend to
support C++ 2003.
Currently I am just waiting on GCC copyright assignment to come
through. I will update my changes to SVN head, and give a patch once
the copyright assignment has gone through.
