I've run our regression tests through it. OpenC++ translates C++ to
C++, so it still requires a usual C++ compiler; I tested with gcc.

Features missing:

 - explicit instantiation
 - T::template f<int>() (i.e. member template access)
 - using-declarations (in some situations)
 - typename in dependent types in formal template value
 - typeid
 - operators.hpp gets garbled so that gcc is no longer able to
compile it.

I'm not impressed.

Should this be part of the "official" regression test suite, just
for fun?
