Interesting idea... :)  Now you have me half convinced to waste a few
hours tonight..  Still I don't think this could ever highlight
templated code or am I missing the boat with objdump?  I am guessing
that what you would get would be a whole heap of mangled function
names which are then difficult to map back to the source.  It would
work with C (I think).
