The autogenerated CML is rarely 100% correct for the compiled libraries. :-)

I did that manually for some of the compiled libraries (e.g. Thread, Iostreams,
Test), but things like Locale or Context are way too convoluted.
I might try my hand at Stacktrace next, as more or less tractable. :-)
Log depends on Locale, but I would have left it to you either way.
