Indeed. And do let me be clear that my disagreement with P1434 is purely
on what I think is implementation feasibility, not with its general aim.
In my opinion we are long overdue a source breaking change with legacy
code for the ecosystem's long term benefit, ideally coordinated at both
the C and C++ levels.

I'll also be submitting my paper for the London meeting, though purely
as an informational paper for WG14, to give a different perspective.
