That should be OK I guess.  If someone with access to such an old
compiler can conditionalize the tests so that they're not run without
namespaces that would be nice, but it's probably not worth your time.

The first C++ standard revision is ISO+IEC+14882-1998, and it has namespaces. My old C++ compiler from 1999 has namespaces. Namespaces are such an integral part of the C++ language, one cannot really expect any C++ code be written without it. The current Bison C++ parser does not use namespaces as much as it should; trying to keep compatibility with old C++ compilers which do not comply to the C++ standard will be too much work.

I must be something wrong with that AIX 4.2 installation. Is it an old OS?
