Huh? This discussion is getting more and more confused.

The ABI has changed. we're not interested in fiddling with the old abi.
The new abi is documented at http://www.codesourcery.com/cxx-abi/

Please read that, before coming back with more ABI related questions. Also
for this particular point please read 3.7.3.2 and 5.3.5 of the standard.

We are extremely interested in bugs in the new abi (both design bugs and
implementation bugs), as we need to get those eliminated before 3.0 comes
out.
