Don't worry, I wasn't going to object on that grounds, I just considered
it reason enough to ask if there's an alternative.
Could you give us an example for the syntax the TI compiler needs?
In principle I guess it's ok, though checking if someone has a better
idea can't hurt I'd think...

Good. Strange, I wonder what that ifdef in MPlayer is good for then.
Maybe time to get rid of it and see...
Does anyone else know of any compiler that has/had issues with vararg
macros? I think the Microsoft one does, but we don't care about that IIRC.
