ev++.h is written in C++, not in any other language. If you compile ev++.h
with any othe rlanguage, that's your problem and doesn't make ev++.h
unusable as you claim.

   -    static void method_thunk (EV_P_ ev_watcher *w, int revents)
   +    static void method_thunk (struct ev_loop *, ev_watcher *w, int

sorry, your patch is completely bogus. you need to explain why warnings
make ev++.h unusable, or why your compiler doesn't support macro

note that your patch *breaks* ev++.h and makes it unusable.

in any case, try a c++ compiler (ev++.h currently relies on some syntax
extensions that are part of the next version of c++, but compiles fine
with current c++ compilers - you can always use gcc).

bullshit, it's obviously usable by many projects, including urxvt, which
runs on a very wide variety of platforms.
