Re: `better conversion sequence' warning -W name?


Thanks, Phil -- I didn't laugh so hard for a long time!
Now, in my CORBA implementations, one of which is 3GB of
compiled C++, it's quite often.  So I'm eager to patch
g++ with your patches.  I use gcc (1) 2.95.3 and (2) 3.1+. 
Question: can I apply these patches to these versions?

+1 for -Wnotanidiot!  RMS would approve, I hope?

Cheers,
Alexy
