Again this argument is making a sort of revisionism. The 72 default
was added to g++, and other front-ends (in reality at the time, only C
could be affected) decided not to. Over the years, we have moved to
share more and more codes with other front-ends. The fact that other
front-ends have been using more and more of the code that was designed
for g++ should not be argument to change the default for g++. It
should be other reasons.
At this point, after something like 10 years, I think we badly need
other reasons to change the C++ default. You are arguing as if we just
inadvertently changed the C++ default yesterday. If I were a C++
front-end maintainer today, I would **strongly** oppose any change to 72
not strongly motivated at least by a comparison with other high quality
front-ends and some feedback from the users asking a different default.
Do we have any of the latter?
