Re: [C++ PATCH] Add sorry() when mangling CALL_EXPR

this patch adds a sorry() when write_expression meets a CALL_EXPR. Since
this is a defect in the C++ ABI, we currently have no way to mangle
correctly such an expression.

If we did this for everything that was inconsistent or missing from the C++ language as g++ (and the standard) was being developed, users would not like the product. :-(


I'd hope that we can pester the abi group (Mark? Jason?) and have them invent something, put it up on their web site, and then we can just do it. Now, while it is fresh in our minds, is a great time to do this.

Failing that, I think this might be reasonable to do, that way, we can change (fix) the abi, and not change it.
