So until it is presented, it is irrelevant to everybody else, and it may
turn out to still be at the time it is presented.

I recall that it was the fact that your C++ compiler finally detected your
illegal use of unions that caused your code to break. -- We did not do any
changes with respect to those union's when altering the skeleton file. And
even in the days the code compiled, it was not safe.

So I think it is you, like the Spartans (according to Herodotus), that is
trying to kill the messenger because you don't like the message. :-)

I can't recall any request for assistance.

No specs on the stuff you are doing has been announced on the Bison lists
what I recall, so it is hard for anyone to judge what to assist with.

Unless the intent is to run the Bison development as a business project, in
which case it would be more suitable paying people accordingly. :-)
