Oops, missed that, sorry.

I'd be happy to update the slides with a comment to that effect if you want me
to? On the other hand, I guess anyone will understand that most features
will eventually be implemented across the spectrum and that if they want
to be sure, they need to check for themselves... which is something else
I meant to say but forgot.

Really need to do talk notes more next time :-(

< ron> I mean, the main *practical* problem with C++, is there's like a dozen
       people in the world who think they really understand all of its rules,
       and pretty much all of them are just lying to themselves too.
