Thanks for working on this; looks useful.

The new name is more accurate, but is rather long; oh well.  As part of
-Wall, users won't typically have to type it, so that's OK.

Is the guard necessarily a "conditional"?  I take a "conditional" to
mean an "if"; the guard could be a "for" or a "while" (or an "else",
which still seems something of a stretch to me to call a

Suggestion: word "this conditional" as "this %qs clause" and either (a)
rework the code in c-indentation.c's guard_tinfo_to_string so that it's
shared between these two warnings (i.e. to go from a RID_ to a const
char *), or (b) just pass in a const char * identifying the guard
clause token.

Likewise; is "conditional" the right word here?  Also, whether of not
the statements are actually "in" the body of the guard is the issue

How about:

"Warn about unsafe multiple statement macros that appear to be guarded
by a clause such as if, else, while, or for, in which only the first
statement is actually guarded after the macro is expanded."

or somesuch?

Hope this is constructive
