> Personally I like #3 because ObjC code using 'struct objc_object' is very likely to either not compile or have really unfortunate behavioral changes — I think Argyrios recently hunted down something in the latter category — but that's the sort of problem we can only suss out with SWBs.  For the immediate problem, changing FunctionArgTypesAreEqual should be enough.

FWIW, I came upon the crash while testing out how 'struct objc_object' is handled in clang. So it wasn't in 'real' code but letting in known crashes is really bad IMO.
