Re: Add -iquote support

Thank you for the quick update. The documentation could use a little
polishing but let's not do that now.

It sounds to me like you (Zack) are convinced that -iquote is a useful thing and good to have. My original concern was that it wasn't useful. I trust your judgement,and Apple also thinks its useful, and, apparently, so does Metrowerks. So, if the -iquote part of Mike's patch is looking good technically, maybe we should put it in?

I also agree with you that -I- doesn't sound very useful. I think it's a good idea to see if we can kill it off, but I can see where Mike is coming from in terms of being reluctant to kill off a feature that people might be using. It seems like we can separate the two issues, though; maybe we could sent out the can-we-kill-this message for -I- after checking in the -iquote bits? Mike's helped out already by producing the -I- -killing patch, so it will be easy to do if we convince ourselves that users will let us.
