Hi Jerry. The patch itself it's safe but I'm not sure we really want
to apply it now, without the corresponding DR. In fact, this situation
happens again and again:

1- We are unsure about the correct interpretation of something.
2- Nathan says: hey, the following is obviously ;) what we(I) wanted: ...
3- Someone replies: the actual standard says something different/ambiguous!
4- Nathan says: you are right: Defect, immediately! (CC: Martin)
5- Martin works on the Defect Report
6- Sometimes in the future, thanks to Martin, the Defect appears

;)

So, what we want to do, as a general policy?

Probably wait a bit more, 'til at least point 6-, if the issue isn't
really obvious.

P.S. ICC8 is consistent with present (wrong?) mainline behavior...
