I've looked at the implementation of the GCC version of libsupc++ and its pretty trivial to duplicate most functionality - the only problem for me came into understanding how this licensing stuff works: if I've looked at and used the GPL source code for reference, would my derivative work also be covered by the GPL? The reason to ask is that I have yet to find documentation (except for the source code itself) that precisely defines how this library should be implemented. Without such documentation, it might take a very long time and lots of test cases to know the new implementation is correct.

FYI, it's "libsupc++".

And here's a reference that talks more about what it is:

Thanks for the reference.

Yes, that looks like what we're going to need.  However, see previous
mails, we can probably only use it if it's not [L]GPL'ed, otherwise we
need to rewrite them (which I guess isn't too hard either).  People
probably don't want to offer their relocatable object files to their
customers when shipping an application -- after all, that would render
the device's lock bits quite useless. ;-)
