Hi Sebastian,

I have a set of patches for nested names, waiting to be "unleashed on 
the world" when the conditions are right.
On the other hand here are a couple of missing C++ features (the "good 
thing" of so much missing C++ support is lots of options to choose 
implementing :-) )

--Unnamed namespaces:

namespace  {  void f(); }
void g() {  f(); }

main.cpp:2:12: error: use of undeclared identifier 'f'

--'using' directives:

using namespace foo;

That is a good question. Is MinimalAction expected to eventually support 
the full C++ type system ? (nested names, templates)
