What if HJ's patch were to turn on type demangling by default only when
the standalone c++filt were being built, and leave the current semantics
stand for the library? (Is that what you're saying?)
My feeling is that users won't know to call c++filt with extra flags.

not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
