I like this if there's more than one boolean arg. If there's only one, I'm
It often is more readable and natural to have a separate "foo_bar"
function for "bar_p = true" (inline perhaps) than to use default
arguments, after which all these comment workarounds go away.
I take it you've not looked at the c++ parser :)
static cp_expr cp_parser_unqualified_id
(cp_parser *, bool, bool, bool, bool);
