Right. But I think we can make C++ pretty-printer a subclass of C's.
That will handle most of concerns you outlined later in your message.
As a concrete start, let's say we have
tree scope; /* mostly a DECL_CONTEXT */
pp_formating_flags_t flags; /* this one may be better passed
as an explicit argument. */
void *x_data; /* front-end specific data. */
Then use language hooks to print specific declarations and such; but
factor out commonalities. I hope to be able to send a preliminary
patch (based on Jason's) late this night.

I'm not sure we want to go that far before the two front-ends got
