That's how this whole thread got started.  That's precisely the problem I'm
trying to solve.  Have you read the whole thread?  If not, please do so.
You're bitching and moaning to the choir on this point.  :-)

--enable-c99 has been in the trunk sources for almost 7 months.

My proposal is simply shifting some of its features from one controlling
"found it!" variable to another.  If you want to split up the C99 features
into individual --enable-foo flags, that's a whole 'nother idea -- one
with some merit, offhand, but not an itch that's on my personal list of
things to scratch.
