My priority #1 is to make clang parses the MSVC's STL code. I am
currently working on a delayed template parsing patch where template
function definitions are lexed and parsed at the end of the
translation unit. This patch would resolve much of the issues when
clang parses MSVC's STL.  I am progressing but it is not yet ready.

After that, 2 more issues (that I know of):

1. Some missing "typename"  that clang complains about but cl.exe
doesn't care bout.
2. There was also a case of a missing "template" keyword that clang
was complaining about. (as in A:: template B<T>).
