(I'm not sure why it took so long for me to respond to this - have I
really been getting these gnats reminders since July '05?! I don't
know why it took me until now to actually do anything about them.)

Well, strictly, it suffices, but if the intent is to remove the ./obj
semantics eventually (as your "for the time being" implies), I'd prefer
to keep the PR open until that happens, if only as a reminder that the
issue is pending. But, on the other hand, I note that you wrote that
in June '05 and the recently-released 4.0 still has the ./obj
bu^Wmisfeature, so maybe it isn't all that temporary.
