Will you stop accusing everyone of breaking ObjC? This is *not* what
happened. The ObjC front end itself was broken, and not by changes to
the C/C++ front end, it was broken well before and it just happened to
It is like driving in a car with a broken steering wheel. At one point
there will be a turn and you will run off the road. That's not because
the turn in the road should not have been there, you should just have
your car fixed.
In this case the car is the ObjC front end, and it was not fixed before
GCC took a turn.
