Maybe, it is time to add -iso to mean iso9899:1990 for it is somehow
counterintuitive not to recognize -std=c90 (== c89) AND recognize
-ansi as -std=iso9899:1990.  That is just inconsistent.

Maybe we should instrumentalize GCC so as to accept //-comment even
when looking for C90/C94-compliance.  At some point, that will be
