My notes from Fairfax meeting...
KMP: Moon is opposed but not vehemently -- thinks the incompatible
change is gratuitous.
Deemed ready for vote.
Barmar: People he talked to back home seemed to prefer to document the
issue rather than change it.
Sandra: Observes that a number of implementations accidentally implement
this incorrectly. They first check the type table and then handle
the elaborate function declaration style. But, as it happens,
they never reach the code for the second case because function is
in the type table!
van Roggen: Having both styles is worse than having either one or the other.
