Yes, sorry, bad wording. The above was meant rather tounge-in-cheek. I
didn't really mean that either of you are "struggling" (or being bitter, for
that matter, that was a joke), only that I understand that CPP conformance
has also been an issue for CPP-libraries, similar to template implementation
for template metaprogramming libraries.
