Yes.  That was the pebble in the shoe.  The cc1plus built for the
purposes of gengtype does not need to look at a lot of code, so
turning off collection may not be a big problem.  We also considered
using a retargetable parser like Clang, or even plugins.

All these approaches meant keeping GC.  Neither of us is very fond of
GC, so we did not explore these alternatives very deeply.
