Getting syntax information on write-protected C++ buffers does work now...
(however, visiting a .java file now doesn't load java-mode?? :-( . (don't
have time to look into the cc-mode autoloads)  But after loading java-mode,
the syntactic information is returned correctly).

Regarding syntactic info 'predicates':

In gud-find-class certain lookups are performed a couple of times per
syntactic context as the information is parsed backward in the file looking
for any nested classes ('inclass syntactic elements).  Two "predicates"
(there must be a better term for "getAttribute" type methods?)  I found
useful to define (inside gud-find-class as local symbols) are:

(fset 'syntax-symbol (lambda (x) (car (car x))))      ; symbol of first
syntactic element
(fset 'syntax-point (lambda (x) (car (cdr (car x))))) ; point (integer) of
first syntactic element

If feeling pedantic, one could also define an iterator:
(fset 'syntax-remaining (lambda (x) (cdr x)))
to make reading code easier (a bit).

I did look through cc-engine to see if anything like the above existed...
It's just
common sense to have such predicates with the "objects", so if you agree,
redesign/name them for cc-engine, and I'll patch gud-jdb accordingly...

Regards, Zoltan
