I didn't mean to raise a false issue. While there were problems with some
past usages, the typedef usage in the code John posted works for at least
the Borland/Metrowerks/Microsoft compilers, and may well work with other
current compilers, too. So maybe we ought to just go with the typedef.

Agreed. The fewer special cases the user must be aware of, the better.
