I fail to understand why backporting the .y file changes
from HEAD is such a big deal? Rather then asking people to
install an unofficial bison, why not provide a patch? I'm
sure if you rummaged through some of the distros out there,
someone has already patched the stable OO to work with
bison-1.50+ (I know Mandrake 9 uses 1.75). There are many
reasons why this is a *good* idea, not withstanding it would
prevent any erroneous bug reports to our mailing list from
people not using the distributed bison. Plus it saves you
the hassle of having to provide the compiled binary. This
saves time for both the OO community and the cygwin
community. And, before you say it, I *seriously* doubt that
few minor modifications to OO's .y files would introduce
