Friend functionality

Hi,

Just wondering if anybody's working on implementing section 11.4 of
the spec (Friend functionality)? The C++ support page is still red
across the boards for that section.

I guess it's worth noting that access checking is turned off by
default, so code that uses "friend" declarations actually does work
despite the support being mostly missing. I don't know if anyone is
working on it at the moment, though.

I’m currently working on essentially everything about friend declarations except access control, i.e. adding the semantic checks, not treating declared entities as members, &c. Much of this is done and should land sometime either this weekend or early next week.
