Just from the DRAFT: 2 December 1996:
  >>
7.1.3 ... [dcl.typedef]
1. ... The typedef specifier shall not be used in a function-definition
(8.4),
<<


Can somebody lookup this paragraph in the final spec?
(The numbers have changed!)

[I can't find that language, but there is a lengthy footnote on page
141 with examples that specifically say that you can typedef a
function type and use it in declarations but not in
definitions. -John]
