    Excuse me if I'm being ignorant, but I thought always_inline was
    introduced because with some recent versions of gcc, inline wasn't doing
    the job (suspend2, which requires a working inline, was broken by it for
    example). That is to say, doesn't the definition of always_inline vary
    with the compiler version?

    Many today claim to be tolerant. But true tolerance can cope with others
    being intolerant.
