Didn't know about that way to get rid of the warning, thanks!

Around a dozen, can be enumerated easily and is indeed probably better than
a regexp.

I wouldn't expect more than a handful (~5). I suppose this has to do with
injecting some Python/Ocaml code? I have some examples bookmarked but
haven't gotten to stare at them long enough.

My attempt at this gives me "minus: parse error", which is why I went
with the split.

Something simple like this works:
---
virtual patch
virtual report

@@
identifier fn;
identifier p;
@@

fn(...,
- long
+ int
p
,...)
{
	...
}
---

but this doesn't:
---
virtual patch
virtual report

@@
identifier fn;
identifier p;
@@

fn(...,
(
- long p
+ int p
|
- unsigned long p
+ unsigned int p
)
,...)
{
	...
}
---
