:Looking at patches and the new version I think that they would break it
:anyway - relevant code seems to be just rewritten entirely.
Yah, I'm still shaking my head wondering what the hell M4 needs
all this godaweful code for? They're diving deep, DEEP into
stdio for no good reason, just to make M4 processing a few nanoseconds
fastr? I just don't undestand it.
In anycase, I'll get it fixed. I'm not going to mess around too much
though, if I have to add some inlines to our stdio.h to move things
along I will.
