Maybe they are "cleaner" to you -- but the YACC rules for GCC are rather
complicated and what I use is much more direct.  You way requires me to
remember the 3-4 different ways the YACC _implicit_ rules can affect the
build.  I feel that for every except you (and maybe BDE) the explicit
rules are clearer and more straight forward.  I do not see anything wrong
with redefining system implicit YACC rules.

You have repeatedly hounded me for quite a while about GCC.  Since so
much of my blood and sweat are not acceptable to you, I encourage you to
become the GCC maintainer and do everything to your heart's desire.

People are really making me regret that I sweated over GCC 3 to bring it
into our tree for all of our architectures and to get many serious bugs
fixed in the FSF CVS repository.
