-fpermissive seems to be posted as the standard solution in this thread,

I don't know what constructs it allows, but it might enable things the 
user doesn't want besides silencing this new change.

So it seems to be more effort than to "just add -fpermissive" to get the 
code to compile again.

Think about big code bases where many developers are working on in 
different areas.
