i have to second that. there just so many halfassed tools around....cc65 is 
one of the few great exceptions actually. i personally wont discourage anyone 
from writing a c++ compiler (although i wont ever use it, may it ever see the 
light) but i dont think it makes a whole lot of sence... these small machines 
have a hard time with running even ordinary C-compiled programs. and the 
actual c-compiler has enough room for improvements aswell....i'd vote for 
removing these first before even remotely thinking about anything new in that 
respect :)
