it looks like
is broken on mainline. Printing children of any C++ structure results in
segfault. The problem is that C++ structures have "public" fake child
that has no type, so mi_print_value_p tries to access properties of a NULL
This is easy to fix, but given that printing C++ structures is a mainstream
use-case, and no IDE developer ever complained, this suggests that this
feature is not used. Rather than carry it along, how about just removing it?
