Actually, I looked at the changeset.. And I don't see how that change is
safe. I can see one immediate compile error/problem, 7 likely other
compile problems, and the high-risk of changing a header in a way that
impacts 3 platforms (and their related numerous compilers).

So.. No. I won't merge that, or want any one else to merge that at this
