It was not my suggestion and it is already rejected with -pedantic-errors,
which is all that is needed, reject it in pedantic mode.
Otherwise there is a warning emitted by default which is enough.
The suggestion was that if we don't reject (and no reason to change when we
reject it), that we handle it right, which is what your optimization broke.
