This patch for http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=18408 is unreviewed for more than two month now. Is there really nobody who can approve it? Come on somebody with approval privileges *must* be gimple literate.

It was reviewed and got rejected.

When? Where?

Lars should have remembered because he pinged it too.

Oh, my bad.

Ok, I seem to recall this also. :-( RTH is right in that the ObjC type system representation is inconsistent, but that is really orthogonal to whether the patch I proposed is safe or not. A rewrite of the type representation (to bring it closer in line with C++/Java) is planned, but in the gcc-4.1 time frame at the earliest.

Does that mean - in other words - gcc-4.0 will be of no use for the GNUstep people or will you provide an interim fix?

The interim fix is the one that we're currently discussing (and which has been rejected).

And isn't there another interim solution possible, maybe one that doesn't depend on tweaking the gimplifier?
(Btw. are FIXMEs an absolute no-go in GCC? I mean putting in a "solution" that is there only as a temporary band-aid but clearly marked as such is o.k. for most of the projects I know)
