I don't have any strong opinion. I think that it causes many more problems
in C++ than in C (since many bug reports I saw are related to its
interaction with refecences), but then there would be issues about shared
code and such.
Anyway, my main concern right now is "-ansi". Why is the extension active
even in "-ansi" mode? I think this is a bug that should be fixed as soon as
possible in all the active branches.
