Euuuugggghhh.  If ever there was code that needed killin', it's the
old C++ parser.

I would wager that if the LSB chooses this path, it will doom vendors to
/always/ needing local parser patches applied once they move to a newer
version, because "the LSB needs it" will probably not be a good enough
reason to prevent removal of the old parser.
