Oh frabjous day! I submitted a patch with my changes to the IonMonkey front-end. Looking at the patch, it seems like such a small change, and yet it took me a lot of time to learn to deal with the code base / C++ / Mercurial -- hence the period of a couple months in between starting working on this and now.

Fortunately, building gcc 4.2 worked, so I spent most of today reconciling my changes with the updated version of the front-end. Eventually, all of the tests passed except a few, and those were a few that I wasn't going to fix (two that seemed to be failing for reasons unrelated to my changes, and two that failed because they were using new Function() to create generators -- it's not clear what the syntax should be for that now, or if it should be allowed; I'll leave that for someone else to decide).

I'm also not really sure why this had to take all day, gosh (actually, an 11-hour day). That doesn't matter, though, because it's done (at least up to receiving review for it). And tomorrow I work on Rust again.
