Re: frontend to gnu compiler

KDE has created a special pre-processor that reads special keywords and macros
in a C++ class definition and produces code that handles callbacks. The input
is a header file and the output is a new C++ source file. A callback function is
called a 'slot', and there is a KDE mechanism for using a 'signal' to execute
the 'slot'. All of this is done with automatically generated code because it is
exactly the same every time.

There's a bit more to it, but that is the general idea. It's a little odd, but
it works quite well.
