C++ language lawyer question


Current mainline issues the following error

  x.cc:2: error: `void A::a()' is private
  x.cc:6: error: within this context

for this snippet:

  class A {
     void a();
  };

  class B {
     friend void A::a();
  };

I'm not a language lawyer, but is this really correct? (Intuitively, it
seems quite backwards.)
