Just for completeness: I filled bugreports for g95, NAG f95 and ifort to
give at least a warning (with -std=f2003, -f2003, -stand f03) and I
tested with sunf95:
use,intrinsic iso_fortran_env,only: stdErr => error_unit
"iso_const.f90", Line = 2, Column = 16: ERROR: Unexpected syntax: "::"
was expected but found "I".
I'm still unsure whether one should accept it with -std=gnu or reject it
sunf95 also gives a (default) warning which we might also want to give:
If a module exists as intrinsic and as non_intrinsic module, sunf95 writes:
use iso_fortran_env,only: stdErr => error_unit
"iso_const.f90", Line = 2, Column = 6: WARNING: This name of
nonintrinsic module may disguise the name of intrinsic module
I don't know whether we want to follow suit (default warning or only
with a -W* option).
