Yes, we're able to parse a bunch of libstdc++ headers now without  
spurious errors, but (as you've seen) we're a long way from being able  
to handle C++ programs.

We have some support for parsing __declspec already, but I'm sure that  
we're missing it when parsing some C++ constructs. What kinds of  
problems are you seeing with __declspec?

FWIW, this is coming from an attempt to instantiate a default argument  
expression in a template (that refers to a typedef), e.g.,

template<typename T>
struct X1 {
   typedef T value_type;
   X1(const value_type& value = value_type());

void test_X1() {
   X1<int> x1;

I should have a fix soon.
