Yes.  I meant that the IDE should give me an indication the moment I add a 
member out of proper sequence to the member initialization list.  But this is 
really secondary to have support to populate the list in correctorder.  I 
would rather have everything correct when I start the build process than try 
and dig through GCC's cryptic output to find all the warnings I care about.  
My code typically compiles without warnings except when I'm using libraries 
someone else created.  But if I do happen to be in a situation inwhich every 
call to g++ generates a warning, I don't care to pick through the whole mess 
to find out if one of them happens to be a member initialization out of sync.
