Re: [C++/Obj-C++ PATCH] Fix Objective-C++ breakage



The SC tried to avoid exactly the situation GCC is in now
(http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2004-06/msg00818.html): "Furthermore,
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".
