Please stop framing opposition to ABI breaks to sound like a plot by evil vendors.
Wait, what? Where in my email above did I do any of that?
"Deemed unacceptable for the major compiler vendors" certainly sounds like it's just a decision that the vendors make
Hm, OK, so I have to admit, this is how I thought it works, yes. But I don't consider that "evil" and more generally, I didn't intend to attach any value judgment to that statement.
It seems that this is a charged debate and I'm not fully informed about what's going on there, so please accept my apologies if I offended anyone, that wasn't my intention.
