We ship it, compiled with the compat compiler - octave 2.0.x violates
the C++ standard (which haven't always been a part of the standard
(although is has been for a couple of years now) and older gccs have
been very lax about enforcing). Fixing the use of reserved words
(like "not") as enums is easy, but then there is macro magic with
castings which is a lot harder to fix.
