I'm sorry I replied and caused you further irritation, I thought this was still
open to discussion.  Since it isn't, I shall move on.

Before I submit my next patch, I was hoping we might further discuss the use of
"a ?: c", since you mentioned it was a conscious decision.  As I noted
previously, I thought it could be a source of confusion since this behaviour is
not documented and is not widely know.  My supposition was confirmed when even
a seasoned programmer like Gary Van Sickle was not aware of this behavior.  I,
myself, had to rummage through the GCC source code to be absolutely certain
what the implict behavior was.  I propose expanding all such instances to "a ?
a : c" to improve clarity of intent and code readability.  Thanks in advance.
