CW has at least three name mangling schemes:

 - The old scheme (ARM-based, predates C++ ABI spec, used by every version of CW
when building PEF executables)
 - The buggy new scheme (C++ ABI spec with some bugs, used by CW8 when building
Mach-O executables)
 - The improved new scheme (C++ ABI spec, I am not aware of any bugs, used by
CW9 when building Mach-O executables).

I wouldn't bring up the bugs except that one of them has to do with mangling
const char* parameters, so it comes up in practically every C++ library. Oops.

Why yes, I did find this the hard way.
