Hmmm, since the documentation claims that XForms also works
with C++ people may assume that a C++ compiler can also be
used to compile the files generated by fdesign with a C++
compiler. And I personnaly feel that it's better to make
that rather simple change, actually reverting to the old
behaviour, than to frustrate them. And as far as I can see
this is all that's needed - things would be different if we
now also would have to do memory allocation using new etc.;-)
Or do you know of any C compiler that would complain about
unnecessary casts? That would definitely change the situation!
