Yes, and C++ is one of the worst parsing nightmares that exist. Prepare
to maintain your code for years to come, or consider it a throwaway

Does anybody know what the status of gcc-xml relative to clang is?
(gcc-xml is reworking the g++ parser to emit XML. It's not complete, but
it should fit the needs of Code::Blocks or CDT nicely once it's done.)
