[PATCH] PR13236 - Microsoft compatibility: support __super specifier to access members of base classes

Thanks for the input guys, I have two questions:

1. MSDN states "__super can only appear within the body of a member function." and yet msvc accepts it in a number of places (data member declaration, typedef, etc.). Do we wan't to be bug for bug compatible with msvc as I see that as major pain?

2. I agree with Aaron that we should support the 'name found in multiple bases' scenario. In theory this is simple enough, but I don't know how hard it is to implement in practice. I guess this is a question for Richard, can I get ambiguous declarations from LookupResult (I see that this is possible) and do an overload resolution on them (this looks more difficult as I don't know how to access the call arguments)?
