I actually don't mind the idea of ObjC, although I will probably only use
it minimistically..what I take issue with, specifically, is the fact that
you have carte blanche control over anything objc related in GCC, and you
act like a lord, dictating what will happen and when, instead of working
with people. I understand that this is a viable model (and often quite
necessary) in many corporations, but it is not how the FSF generally does
business, and I ask that you kindly recognize that and act in cooperation
with others, instead of just dictatinig, which is what you're doing now.

Dude, you'll have to be specific here. If there is something _specifically_
wrong that you think I'm doing, please share it with us. But I must tell
you that I tend to ignore vague, gadfly-like criticism like the foregoing.

Just to clear up misconceptions, I have absolutely no problem with you
personally nor with the idea of ObjC++. The last time you comitted a bunch
of stuff, you broke the GNU ObjC runtime in your branch because you were
(IMHO) careless, and I do not wish to see a repeat performance of that.

I think you may have a minor misconception as to the purpose of objc-improvements-branch. It is a _development_ branch, among many others, and as such contains work in progress, which may at times be partially (or even completely) broken. It is _not_ a release branch.
