I am not really familiar with this old scheme, so please excuse my ignorance
in asking these questions:
* How likely is it that there are old toolchain in use out there that still
use the v2 mangling ? Ie I guess that I am asking "which generation(s)
of gcc used v2 mangling ?"
* If a user does try to demangle a v2 mangled name, what will happen ?
Ie I guess I am asking if they will be given a hint that they need to use
an older toolchain in order to demangle the names.
