I'm /a/ Phil, but dunno whether I'm /the/ Phil you had in mind.  We come
in convenient six-packs now, you know.

Do I even want to ask what an X Strike Force is?

The standard C++ library is compatible at the source level (i.e., recompiles
should Just Work), with the exception of deprecated stuff and odd extensions.

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
