This problems comes from bison.simple, which includes too many 
C++ features.  Changes for a better compatibility with C++ are only
here to help users, who want to use generated parser in their C++ 
sources.  IMHO, we should not add more modifications for C++ - I
was surprise to see "std::" modifications.  This is a good idea to
wait for Bison 1.50, but Bison 1.33 seems enough.

Bison 1.50 (or 2.0) should be release in a near future, so users have to
wait for a real C++ parser =).

Two months looks good :)
