I don't agree. gcc should be able to grok iso-c _by default_,
if possible every version of it. selecting between different standards
imho only makes sense when:
- two standards (or versions of it) disagree on the same syntax.
- you want strict conformance and use gcc as a tool to warn
about possible (conformance) problems (like -pedantic should do).
Yes, that is basically what I meant, though you did a much better job of
stating it than I did. We reject the special meaning of ## only if the
user explicitly asked for iso-c9x without GNU C extensions. We can't
write code to do that yet though because we don't have any way for the user
to ask for that.
