Yes, even #ifndef/#define/#endif wrappers wouldn't help here.

No, only functions with a body that are defined inside of the class
declaration are implicitly inline, everything else must be marked
inline at definition.

What *might* work, and I've not tested this with gcc, is the use of a
pre-compiled heeader that includes your a.h file so that it isn't
constantly parsed and defined.
