Apple (and some other vendors, including CodeSourcery) is in the

may not make much of a difference to Apple; Apple doesn't use it
directly anyhow.

And the reason we don't is because the FSF keeps shooting down our patches. You just can't have it both ways.

And Apple keeps ignoring existing infrastructure. I understand the inconvenience for you, but you should _fix_ patches, not force in.

Please explain what you mean by 'infrastucture' and just how evil Apple is ignoring it. Also please explain how to fix patches that were shot down _on principle_, such as my recent AltiVec work.
