    I'll only comment on the obvious interface bugs:

    This is an interface error. The last "const" is superfluous and indeed
    completely meaningless. It's about as meaningful as applying "const" to a
    return type "bool", which you also display exists in the current code.

    Do you think you could whip up a patch to fix this? It seems your compiler
    is a lot less forgiving than the mainstream. :-)
