FWIW, I think I'm fine with changing the default, yet hope the other
option remains. But since you said you received no feedback I want to
reiterate another suggestion:
typedef int NSInteger;
typedef unsigned int NSUInteger;
typedef float CGFloat;
which produces a lot of compiler warning for code targeting both GNUstep
and legacy API, would you consider:
#define NSInteger int;
#define NSUInteger unsigned int;
#define CGFloat float;
it stops the warnings: Code targeting older API's will compile without
it stops the warnings: Code being my not be upgraded to use the new
types so that future versions will be compatible with 64 bit.
Personally I can understand if you believe the #define may be worse and
I can surely keep that patch locally. But then again, anyone wanting to
stay up to date will hardly use the define/configure option.
