I'll back out the change to 'h', which is the only incompatible change I can see (unless you consider accepting *more* than before an error). Thomas made no changes to 'l', so I'm not sure what that is about -- maybe the problem is with unsigned hex constants?
Is this a temporary measure, i.e. is the semantic change to 'h' going to come back after 2.3 is out?
I don't see why -- it always was a signed short, let it stay that way.
