I think your definition of "necessary" differs significantly from mine. RPM will not break down if this incompatible change is not made (or reverted, now that you pushed it), so I do not see why it is necessary.

And to give some context: as a maintainer of [TIGCC](http://tigcc.ticalc.org/), I was consistently reverting that kind of changes to our patched GCC (C only though, because we did not support C++ (whose GCC frontend is much worse in this respect) for other, unrelated reasons). I did all I could to maintain backwards source compatibility all the way to the initial alpha release of TIGCC and I strongly believe that this should be the standard to which to hold all compilers. E.g., the TIGCC patch reenables multiline C string literals, C casts as lvalues, etc. So I am not just a passive complainer.
