wow Hamish! rpp2 is just great :-) please Hamish rename it in rpp (or 
preprocessor?) and remove the old rpp code. We don't need crap-stl code now 
that we have *cute* Qt code ;-)

kdevelop-pg needs a lot of work. For instance it would be nice to have the 
support for:
  - error recovery (correcting and non correcting)
  - backtracking and LL(k) support
  - better AST generation
  - and so on...
