Robert didn't reply to say which packages are affected.  If it is just

This seems just to require a package update.

First, the patch needs to be reviewed if only public interfaces are
changed, because -ansi compatibility is only required for them, not
for internal stuff.  Then it needs to be tested of course.

This patch is complex enough to warrant a thorough discussion of what
is changed and why.  Of couse to be able to hold such a discussion, one would 
first have to crunch the code :)
