As the GCC folks advise, those are useful only for pedants.  I'm not
interested in pedantry, but portability.  I don't think the GCC guys
really care about backwards compatibility to old compilers ... which
is surely their right, but it's kind of a problem for those of us
who'd like to maintain portable application code.
