Taking only the GCC C and C++ compilers isn't overly large or complex. We
have to remember that parsing C++ is hard - so hard that it seems that
nobody has it quite right yet - so writing a small standalone utility to do
this is probably impossible unless there is another good freely available C++
parser to use.

If Boost had its own C++ parser it would be an entirely different story :)
