So, what do you intend to do about this incompatibility you have introduced?

As I already said a few days ago, this is not my problem. There is no possible solution for modes which don't use the Emacs interfaces as they are supposed to be used, except disabling the new feature, which is 100% backward compatible, in these modes. In the meantime two other people (Stefan and Eli) explained, with different words and viewpoints, why CC Mode should not do what it does. You made it very clear that you don't care. End of story.

.... (and I wonder what the ";-)" above is supposed to convey).

The irony of a supposed optimisation causing software to hang.

The long line optimizations does not claim to be a solution to all possible hangs. Doing that is theoretically impossible, as you may know. They only claim to be a practical solution to alleviate a particular class of hangs.

it would be convenient for you if everybody followed your (controversial) desires,

I have no desires whatsoever. I worked (and still work) to fix a long-standing bug in Emacs, by which I was, incidentally, not affected myself.
