I have tested it on a SGI system, and I'm sorry to say that it
does not work. A few serious C problems of the source were easy
to patch. But the result does not indent the '::' correctly when
templates are used, and the 'private:' keyword is indented in
the wrong direction. All this makes it impossible to use.

Why can't the GNU project just fix the GNU-indent to cope with C++ ?

to fix it yourself, I'm sure they'd be happy to get the changes. -John]
