So, do you think it would be OK to rename 'class' above to, say,

This field is used in GNUstep. What do you propose that code should do
to work with both versions? Change the name only if __cplusplus is

Change the name unconditionally... please? :-)

Of course, this only applies to stuff in headers that may get pulled into a C++/ObjC++ translation unit. I just noticed that GNU libobjc has local
objects named 'class' in its .c and .m files, which is fine.

But the structs are used in GNUStep and which cannot change just support one version of gcc. They have to support multiple versions of gcc. I rescind my ok on this. Knowing that programs will brake. Also changing it conditional on __cplusplus is okay with me as it is
okay with Alex.
