Is this rational still valid for new libraries? I would imagine that
there are a number of recent libraries accepted that don't support the
older compilers for other reasons. I was proposing we make it a
preferred practice for ongoing and future development. I would not
suggest we revise mature libraries to conform to this style. Do you
think that is reasonable?
