Ah, my mistake. I have the sense of pedwarn backwards. For some reason, I
thought it meant give a warning in pedantic mode only. Well, it is Friday. :)
Of course, with the true meaning of pedwarn, this patch still provides no way
to get back to the current state, even with -fpermissive. However, since the
current behaviour is wrong, and I for one have no interest in such an
extension, I'll not complain.
