I don't think that GDB will ever support this. It's one of a batch
of C++ improvements that would be nice to have, but getting it right
would require most of a C++ front end. And for various reasons,
I don't think that reusing the g++ front end would be practical.
We could probably get it to work in strictly limited cases, though.
