Bootstrapped and ran libstdc++ testsuite on i686-pc-linux-gnu. OK
I'm away from my primary development machine and cannot check the
whole logic behind those macros, but first blush I'm not ok with the
patch. *When* are we going to warn, with the patch applied? Because
morally this stuff *is* deprecated, and that is already a concession.
If essentially we are going to never warn, then let's move back this
stuff to ext/, seems much cleaner to me. I have no problem with the
other maintainers overruling me about these issues, but really
personally I'm not confortable with extending the life of this old
code, simply we don't have the manpower to care about legacy stuff,
with all the work ahead of us for C++1x!
