(1) Bug fixes (as evidenced by the numerous new test cases vs. mainline) (2) Support for new Mac OS X (NeXT) runtime features, accessible via -fobjc-exceptions, -fno-nil-receivers, -fzero-link and -freplace-objc-classes, all of which have been documented in gcc/doc/invoke.texi. Test cases are included (and made
      Darwin-specific when appropriate).
(3) Retrofit of DejaGNU ObjC test suite so that most tests are usable with
      both NeXT and GNU runtimes.
(4) Very humble beginnings of Objective-C++ support (e.g., stub-objc.c, more
      #ifdef OBJCPLUS fragments in objc-act.c).

I deduce from this, that ObjC++ should also live in c-parse.in and objc-act.c. :-/ I'll have a closer look once it's on the branch, but I must say I'm not too thrilled about effectively supporting three front ends in this conglomerate of files. If this is currently necessary to avoid code duplication, I'm not going to attempt block it. But we should try to find a way to separate the front ends and somehow share common code soon.

I shall wait 24 hours for feedback,

The branch is still missing Alex's patch. Therefore we are seeing some inappropriate (but I believe harmless on all architectures) warnings about: GSObjCRuntime.m:1497: Warning: `Class' may not respond to `+methodForSelector:' GSObjCRuntime.m:1497: Warning: (Messages without a matching method signature
GSObjCRuntime.m:1497: Warning: will be assumed to return `id' and accept
GSObjCRuntime.m:1497: Warning: `...' as arguments.)
GSObjCRuntime.m:1497: Warning: assignment from incompatible pointer type

(The method is declared as an instance method on a root class.)

I care little about whether this gets fixed on the branch or on mainline and gets merged back later, but it should get fixed soon.

and then commit this under my newly-acquired Objective-C mullah powers.

This ChangeLog is very lengthy and covers all kinds of changes. Some of the cleanups are very welcome. Some parts I'm somewhere between indifferent and undecided. Others I don't think belong into the compiler but should be left for libraries to implement (but Alex already mentioned that). Plus there are more formal issues about introducing changes that seem to belong in ObjC++ support and not in this initial 'ObjC' only merge. There seem to be a few new non-portable implementation (which is currently NeXT runtime only). These should be addressed individually, so that we can find portable solutions for the GNU Runtime where applicable. (Plus formating issues here and there, especially the test cases.)

Would it be possible to split this merge into coherent patches, individually RFC'ed and applied to mainline? As time permits I'm willing help extract them from the branch.

  Here and there, the patch does touch non-ObjC files,
but in a very straighforward manner.
