I'm currently testing a patch to use gfc_notify_std as you suggest,
but I was a bit surprised to discover during testing that gfortran
both warns about the use of GNU extensions by default, and even warns
about them when using -std=gnu.

I was hoping that gfc_notify_std would issue a warning if the user
has specified -std=f95 or -std=f2003, and remain silent otherwise.
Is this really the intended behaviour (different from the other GCC
language front-ends)?
