I'm glad you agree as well. I hope that David will complete his
patch in time for GCC 3.0 so that we do not have to make this change
at this late date. However, if we can convince Jason, we can perhaps
make this change in GCC 3.1.
You, Benjamin, and Gaby are real C++ programmers (as opposed to me,
who is a K&R C programmer working on a C++ compiler, most of the time),
so it is valuable to hear what you think.
