That's one of the issues that would magically disappear in case the
ongoing clang experiment turned out to be successful.

So at the moment it's a bit hard to decide where to put energy,
improving the existing parser or make the clang based one usable.

There won't be new features in 2.4.x, so the next possible slot
would be the 2.5 release. But sure, it's being worked on. One way
or the other ;-)
