Hey, I tried doing this (adding VoikkoGrammarError as a class), but I
keep getting stuck with "does not name a type" errors. For both
"GrammarChecker" and "VoikkoGrammarError".

./grammar/VoikkoGrammarError.hpp:46:2: error: 'GrammarChecker' does not
name a type
make[3]: *** [spellchecker/spell.lo] Error 1

and if I comment out GrammarChecker in VoikkoGrammarError:

If you get a moment could you take a look and see what I'm doing wrong ?
In the worst case I can hack around it, but I'd like to see if the
"proper" way will work first... :)
