Re: [libstdc++ patch] Fix basic_string::_S_construct null pointer check

Couple of comments, Doug:

1)  Can "Apple Mail" be told to do its attachments in text/plain instead
    of application/octet-stream?

I have a feeling these will come in handy in other files, but I can't
think of a better place to put them right now.  In the meantime:

2)  Please name the function __is_null_pointer or __null_pointer_p
    or something like that, to make it clear this is a predicate function.
    Reading the code where it was used made me think at first that the
    function creates and returns a null pointer.

3)  This should go in __gnu_cxx, not std.  Actually, this should go in
    our internal-details namespace, but we haven't invented that name yet.

Please put a blank line after the date/name/email bit, for the sake of
GNU-changelog-style parsers.

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
