Take a look at 3.1 sources; I thought we addressed this already, but it's
been a while since I looked at it.

Neither does the C++ standard.  (And there was weeping and wailing and
gnashing of teeth.)  The committee has hashed out some replacement text

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.            - Samuel Adams
