Don't think we should do this until there are must-have features missing.
IMHO this one is only a nice-to-have feature and the ifdef solution should
be ok as long as we're far away from 1.0. Building our own compiler
would require resources (build, maintain, *document*)  we can better spend
on our own code.

BTW: For those not so familar with cvs:

  When I hit the compile error I still wanted to test some things. To make
  lazarus compile again I checked out the latest working version of
  control.inc (version 1.49 in this case). This could easily be done by

    cvs update -r 1.49 control.inc

  in the lcl/include directory. control.inc was now "sticky" and excluded
  from any furher update. When I saw Mattias mail about the workaround I
  removed the sticky-flag with

    cvs update -A control.inc
