As a test, I have a LaTeX stylesheet that converts the following into
syntactically-valid, but poorly formatted, C++:

    \baseclass[private virtual]{def}



This becomes:

namespace hello_there
template < typename boo = default_type, typename foo >
class someclass :
public foo, private abc, private virtual def
typedef int int_type;
template < typename Allocator >
class nestedclass :
class double_nested
template < typename Allocator >
class nestedclass :
typedef double float_type;
typedef someclass<foo> footype;

With a bit of effort, I could improve the formatting. I also have a partial
TeX4HT stylesheet to convert this LaTeX to Doug's suggested XML syntax.

Oh, and to the people who know LaTeX --- yes, those are real underscores, not
\_. This messes up using $$ for displaymath, but $ for math still works, with
underscore invoking subscript as normal.
