BTW, as a GCC user I'm also very frustrated by the (lack of)
organization in the extensions chapter; the information about
attributes and built-in functions is all mixed up with sections on
random syntactic extensions like "Dollar Signs in Identifier Names",
etc. Maybe somebody else could work on a proposal for reordering the
material in that chapter in parallel?
I actually took a shot at this a while back, but didn't think anyone
would be interested. 60+ items in an unordered list seemed a bit much
for human consumption. Even when you *know* something is on the page it
can be hard to find.
Let me dig that back out and post it here in a new thread.
