How is one supposed to think of something like this? The next thing we find
out -- VC might already have an undocumented typeof -- just called
differently :-)

Did you remove __if_exists/if_not_exists stuff? This would mean it would
also compile with the language extentions disabled...

And also removes half of the users from the compliant implementation.
Really, how many are left if gcc has native typeof, and vc7 uses this

Well, competition is competition...

I think we should contact the guy and ask if he is interested in working
with us. If not -- we can use his code, but I think this would be fair to
ask. I'll do this later today.
