I'm hoping that Spirit's backtracking abilities will enable it to parse
C++ without all the context. For example, it should be possible to parse
a header file without seeing all the header files it includes. This
would make a Spirit C++ parser the perfect (fast!) tool for
documentation generation, automatic Python wrapping, etc.
I'm going to do this some day, if nobody gets there first (however, I
/really/ hope somebody gets there first)!
