We will, sooner or later. But there are 123 other bugs (enhancement
requests not counted) in Bugzilla for Gfortran right now. They need to
be fixed too.   We see no reason to give higher priority to this bug
than to the others.

If GNU standard conformance for error messages is more important/urgent
than ICE-on-valid-code and rejects-valid-code in your opinion, feel free
to argue about it.  If you are really convincing, I promise to put it as
the next item on my personal TODO-list.  Otherwise I'll concentrate on
fixing a few other bugs first.
