likely harmless. Removing it from header files is probably a
different story. Don't get me wrong; I have no use for __P(). I just
think nuking it in header files will be met with more resistance than
usual. For one, it makes the entire system (well, anything that uses
that header file, which is a large chunck of programs) incompatible
with a ``K&R Old Testament'' compiler.
