	Memory makes the difference. It's also taken that long because g++
dies in the middle of the night due to an optimiser bug or lowish memory
condition. (Yes, c++ had a problem compiling one file with -O3, forgot
which one.)

	It's being sent under separate cover. About the accessibility
stuff, I really just did a trivial disabling of the code (commenting out
the body of the function and just returning NS_ERROR_BLABLA. AFAICT those
are issues with the interface generator not generating the correct class
name. (Seeing this code I wonder about the quality of C++ instruction at
my school).
