Ok..actually the gcc compiler did not like it much :)...I accept that the current behaviour is unintrusive and is reasonable. Any idea if which compilers actually accept such input? I am trying to find out what underlying support exists so that our product can behave accordingly..I am thinking now that the best way for us is to also be unintrusive.
