  Evidently I was talking about a general principle, not about introducing a dependency on the compiler telling you what (not) to do. If I wanted that I'd be coding in Modula-2 ...

  But those viewers cannot be expected to handle all specifics of a further evolved format, can they now? Despite all its differences C++ still has a lot in common with C, and formatting it as C is better than formatting as plain text, no?
  I know the s-m-i entries talk about "subclass-of" (which to me in fact suggests the opposite, i.e. subset of) but Qt translates that to inheritance which I think is fine. And describes the situation exactly; C++ and ObjC aren't called D++ and ObjD for a reason after all ;)
