Actually, GNU Indent works ok with C++ code (I think). I've formatted
*some* C++ code with it, and it seems to work.

But there were quite a number of bugs in the current released version
(1.9.1) for *both* C and C++... mostly relating to operators. For my
own work, I've fixed all of those I found, and added additional support
for the C++ specific operators.

I'll be happy to mail patches (relative to 1.9.1) to anyone who wants them.
