Re: C++ PATCH: PR 20599 (1/3)

Thanks Doug, impressive. In my opinion, everything considered - in particular the fact that variadic templates do *not* introduce any new keyword - it would be great if we could apply your patch (and the corresponding library changes, of course) as soon as possible, early Stage 1 of the next release cycle, I think.

At the same time, I (still) believe we badly need a global strategy for the C++0x features, for those features adding keywords, incompatibilities, and all the others: as noticed by Richard G in private conversation, probably the transition could be managed similarly to that to C99, only I'm not sure about the current time frame, when only a draft of C++0x exists and, I would say, many of the most anticipated features are not there yet. What about adding something about that process in the wiki section about gcc4.3 (by the way, I noticed that variadic templates are already there, good)??

Thanks again,
