Synopsis: -Wmissing-declarations is C-only, conflicts with documentation

    The C-only part has been fixed. Matt, I agree with Gaby that
    the -Wmissing-declarations is not very useful, since, for 
    example, most of the STL is implemented in header files (using
    inline functions) that have no prior declaration.
    Regarding the other issue (misdeclaration): there's not
    much you can do in C++, because you can overload. So if
    a declaration doesn't match a definition or another
    declaration for the same name, that's not an error, but
    just declares a second function. There may be something
    that I don't see, but I think I would prefer if we had
    a separate bug report for this if you feel that there's
    something missing.
