And I actually went looking for it again as recently as two years
ago, considering the possibility of using it to allow the use of
C++ code for a small embedded processor which did not have an 
available C++ compiler.  I actually don't remember precisely why
we didn't try it out, and I assume we simply got distracted by having
to make things work and forgot to continue the search.

Can it be used as a front-end for such chips, where at best there
are two or three C compilers on the market?
