I should probably add that I'm not flagging that I think there's a problem here. I'm mostly urging caution - I hate having to cut brown-paper-bag releases <wink>. If possible, can the folks on c++-sig try this patch out and put their results in the patch discussion? If you're keen, you could try jumping onto HP's testdrive systems (http://www.testdrive.hp.com/).
From what I recall, they have a bunch of systems with non-gcc C++ compilers,
including the DEC^WDigital^Compaq^WHP one on the alphas, and the HP C++ compiler on the HP/UX boxes.
I've looked at the patch, and it looks fairly safe, so I committed it.
