Excellent ! Unfortunately it seems the context::iterator_type isn't documented
anywhere, at least I couldn't find this feature in

Also, I believe the implementation contains a bug (though to be really sure I'd
need to see the specification):

It appears the force-included header is searched as if included by means of
#include "file", i.e. starting in the directory containing the main input.

In contrast, the gcc documentation explains that the search should disregard
that main input's directory, and start searching in the current working directory
instead (

(Please bear with me for using gcc as the authoritative input ;-) )

Thanks a lot !
