The SC tried to avoid exactly the situation GCC is in now
nobody will be required to test Objective-C++ as part of the check-in
cycle, and people who cause defects in Objective-C++ will not
necessarily be required to fix them, although good manners dictates
that people will help clean up their own mess where practical."
As I interpret it, if the patches are very invasive (such as the once
that changed tree nodes internal to the parsers, to be separate C
structs) no one should be forced to rework Objective-C++. But in most
cases, spending half an hour on a fix is just "good manners".
