I would like you don't personalize the debate -- that won't buy us 
anything but miscommunication. Not just because I don't favor Jason's
proposal means I don't undertand the arguments.  Jason's proposal has
pros and cons (as does Mark's) but as someone who has some experience
with C++ programming, I think the difference in behaviours of some 
program constructs araising from Jason's proposal makes it a lesser
consistent work-around than Mark's.

I'm confused as to why you're bringing "xlC name mangling" into this

I would really appreciate much you try to understand the issue
(implicit instantiation implementation in G++ on AIX) and proposals at
hand instead of trying to personalize the debate.  It is crucial that
you undertand the language semantics under discussion here.
Otherwise, we'll have nothing but ill-communication.
