Thanks!  That is certainly an impressive, if a bit incomplete, tool. If 
nothing else, it reminded of how truly crude the concept of a translation 
unit really is. :-)  I just happened to have #include <sstream> in the first 
file I ran it on.  Yuck!  In order for it to be useful for my purposes, I 
will have to figure out how to get it to restrict its output to the immediate 
source.  I believe you are thinking of the absolute other end of the same 
problem domain as I am.  If I understand, you are interested in the PCS for 
Boost.  No?  

I'm interested in the new method dialog and, etc.
