Very cool, Micah.

A slightly oblique question: does anyone know how to turn on national
language character support in GCC? ANSI C++ allows all sorts of national
characters in identifiers, but a simple test program:

        #include <stdio.h>
                int main(int argc, char **argv) {
                char * = "Hello, world!";
                return 0;

compiled with 'g++ -ansi' does not fly with GCC.
