Strange implicit constructors and enum types used as enum values - that's what 
I'm seeinginterfaces/ktexteditor/codecompletion2.h. Both are pretty doubtful 
constructs, which I can very well imagine create problems to Solaris or 
Windows compilers as well.

And if really 11% of our developers use that compiler, I don't think it's a 
problem supporting it at all (compared to 1% for gcc 2.95).
