hmm, it looks like somebody commented out the #error that would normally
prevent that test from ever occurring on 4.1.0 or 4.1.1.
When I had written this patch, it wasn't commented out and I had assumed
that it was obvious from the context.

I would say that commenting this out is bad if __weak is miscompiled. 
If we don't want to break the build, should we at least be defining
__weak to something else?
