So it's not so simple. In any case, the aliases already exist for binary compatibility, but some of them would be masked by these defines even if we declared them in the public headers. Really what you're asking for is just a workaround of a nonsensical bug in llvm, which should just be fixed. There is no excuse for the hack they're doing with namespaces; instead the names should just be properly prefixed to avoid clashing. Rich
