"A bunch of people on IRC are unhappy" is not an argument.  The code is
ready when it's ready.

The issues raised by Geoff Keating were not "bureaucracy", they were
technical, and they were resolved; the final resolution was

http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2004-12/msg00433.html

This was an important issue because the wrong design would have slowed
down the C and C++ compilers more.  As it is, all C and C++ users will pay
a slight penalty due to the support of ObjC++, but a threshold (no more
than 1% cost) was agreed to and was met.

Many of the comments in the IRC log you quote seem misinformed or out of
date.
