Gabriel dos Reis and myself recently reorganized the type
printing code in error.c. The archives should have some discussion
about this stuff. (about a month ago).
* in a template instantiation uses the template type parm, and tells
you how it was expanded
* consistent about spacing around *, & etc
* More configurable bit flags to control formatting.

IIR, the discussion decided to stick with GNU style formatting for now
(`const int *const '). But no strong feeling was expressed about
religiously adhering to it.
