        gcc 2.95.3 is useless. If you haven't broken it
in the regression tests, you haven't been trying.
It has a catastrophic bug: it expands inline methods of template classes
when it instantiates the class.

        The following example will fail for any smart pointer
class with an inline dispatch on the internal pointer:

        class Y { smart_ptr<X> x; };
        class X { smart_ptr<Y> y; };

Is there a way to turn off this non-conforming behaviour?
