I'm not talking about anything besides the __cxa_demangle entry point
as defined by the ABI. This function is already defined as extern "C".
I'm not going to write a new demangler.
Instead, a new implementation was donated to the FSF that is
substantially better that what was used previously. It offers several
advantages, which I have already pointed out. I think it would be
foolish to ignore a gift and not use the new implementation for
This is now in.
