OK; I expect these issues with the implementation are all
surmountable. I did not necessarily expect this to be the final
implementation anyhow, as indicated by my comments below the divider
line. However it's not clear to me what you think about the idea in
principle, and whether other compiler flags would merit inclusion.
(And also, please don't let this discussion hold up acceptance of the
two prior patches in the series. Even though they are independent,
they are somewhat logically related so I grouped them into the same
series, although I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do.)
