If you aim at compiling the full ISO C++, it cannot be tiny (because
the C++ language specification is large & bloated).

If you want some small & fast compiler, it could only parse a small subset of 

One could perhaps imagine using an existing C++ front-end, but that is
not tiny anymore.

For instance, one could imagine adapting tinyc to the output of the GCC
C++ front-end (e.g. to early Gimple or Generic in GCC parlance) but
that is not tiny anymore.
