I'm not sure whether to be flattered or run away screaming. :-)
Seriously, though, I'm about to look at _some_ of this since it
touches i18n issues. The gcc tree has the intl library directory
under the gcc directory, the src tree has it as a top level
directory. The latter is the Right Thing, but the libintl in src is
ancient. If I just move gcc/intl to top level of /cvs/gcc that will
make the merge conflict problems even worse.
I'm also looking into importing Bruno Haible's libiconv - that will
make gettext 0.10.40 happier and give Java (and C-family, near future)
reliable support for non-ASCII/Unicode charsets.
