I'm not objecting to incremental changes in general; I already approved the
other pieces of the patch.  But C_EXP_ORIGINAL_CODE is used in the same way
by both front ends.  I don't see the point in changing two places in the
C++ front end to use a separate mechanism while the C front end is still
using the old one.  I object to patches that cause the C and C++ front ends
to diverge.  In most cases I have to suck it up because people aren't
interested in doing the necessary work for parallel changes, but in this
case I don't see any good reason for the divergence.
