But seriously, people using GNUstep ask about ObjC++ regularly,
and all I can say to them is that Apple will support it in Apple's
version of GCC, but that it's up to the SC as to whether it's
included in FSF GCC, and they haven't yet announced a decision.

The last SC-originated message I know about is
http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2001-11/msg00939.html from Mark M
asking for a copy of our old patches. I would be OK with
making ObjC++ conditional upon adoption of the new parser,
but the SC reserves to itself the decision of which new
languages to support in FSF GCC, and until they announce a
decision, there's not much point in speculating about tactics
