Must we provide a dialog asking for conformance to strict C++,
to different level of the standard.  And at he lowest level let
it be a fuzzy C parser.

I am very tempted to allow, get information from *.o file if
they are available, and even more if the object file was
compile with the debug information turn on.
Ask where library/executable genereted by this project are if any.
