Re: Wold-style-declaration (PR7651 Define -Wextra strictly in terms of other warning flags)

I can see how this flag can apply to C++ -- think of deprecated
"static non-local variable declaration", which should be written as
members of unnamed namespaces -- but that is for another day.
You should fill a enhancement PR if you don't want that idea to get
lost in the mailing list archives. Seriously. Or at least write it
down on a webpage.
One of my motivations for applying for the Google Summer of Code was
Joseph Myers's page [*]. I think it would be a great idea to link it
from the wiki as further projects ideas for next year GSoC.
