Yes, we discussed it before. The Digital Mars C/C++ compiler does this, and NOBODY CARES. Not one person in 25 years has ever even commented on it. Nobody commented on its lack in dmd. It's a waste of time to implement things nobody cares about.

I think that is a nice feature to have in a compiler. No life-chaging, no critical, but still nice.
