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

Obj-C++ is certainly not a problem. Java and Fortran are already part of all

Is that a good thing? I've done little middle-end work, so I don't have
much experience with this. How often does a change to the optimizers
pass all of the C/C++ testsuites, but fail in the Java or Fortran
These aren't rhetorical questions; I have no idea. I'm interested in
what actual experience is like here. My guess would be that changes to
the build machinery are quite likely to break various languages, but
that changes to (say) the register allocator are unlikely to work
reliably in C/C++, but not in Fortran/Java. And, that, in fact, Ada is
the language other than C/C++ most likely to show up problems.
