It is “Work in Progress”, yes.

The WIP C/C++ grammar is matching the full structure of your source  
code, there are 3 “concerns”:

  1. It is more fragile (since an unforeseen or wrongly matched  
structure can throw it off).
  2. It is somewhat slower than the regular grammar.
  3. It doesn’t have as good support for the #if 0/1 … #else … #endif  
as the original grammar (since that structure is orthogonal with the  
structure of the actual C/C++ code).

Number 1 just means it needs testing to the point where I am confident  
it works :)

As for #2 and #3, for #2 we can only wait for TM 2.0 to really get  
that addressed and #3 either requires a lot of duplication in the  
grammar or also that we wait for TM 2.0 -- but as there is no ETA on  
TM 2.0, the question is if the demand for the improvements outweigh  
the tradeoffs, we haven’t really decided that, in the end I guess it  
is my call, and I am thinking we should make it trunk maybe in 1-2
