With my CodeSourcery hat on:

- Our customers would like to have the old syntax restored.  However,
they have adapted to the new syntax.

With my FSF hat on:

- I'm not at all eager to have yet another language extension,
especially when there is a perfectly reasonable way of expressing the
idea in our current vector syntax.  At the very least, I think that we
need to have a document that explains how the Motorola syntax interacts
with ISO C and C++, if at all.  The parenthesized form is much more
likely to be in conflict with *something*.
