You missed my point. You cannot take a C program, compile it with a C++
compiler and expect it to compile and/or run. It was not meant to do so.
If you do it nevertheless and encounter problems, the problems are yours not 
I agree that Bison should generate genuine C++ parsers. But they should have 
their own templates. Raping bison.simple is not The Right Thing IMHO.
