Well, we'd call that non-intrusive change. ;)

You'd just need to compile the plug-in, and not a changed compiler 
(which then may even apply recursively). This rules out a whole class 
of possible error sources.

So it's probably the last 10% that counts. ;) Which, BTW, fits nicely 
into another 90/10 rule: 90% of all errors are coming from only 10% of 
the code. ;)
