 (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.
