I would obviously like us to get this in soon.
Even if the ideas are not formally presented I would like a broader
audience to at least scan the names and the rationales at the meeting to
see if they are OK.
I realize I suggested this late and I'm not doing the work.
Thank you, Clark for even thinking about this.
In other news, I checked in the main part of SD-6 feature checking into
gcc-5.0. I hope to get the attribute checking in the coming weeks
before 5.0 branches.
Furthermore, I have strong support from my fellow maintainers to
backport this work to gcc-4.9.
