Comment(by stimming@…):

 Unfortunately in [58138] and [58184] you changed the previously existing
 member variable invalid_syntax::tokens into an accessor function
 invalid_syntax::tokens(). This breaks existing code that wanted to print a
 helpful error message to the user, and with a rather weird compiler error
 message. Couldn't you introduce a more graceful change of interface here?
 Like, at least introducing the accessor function with a different name, so
 that the developer more easily understands you have removed the public
 member? Thanks!
