Re: Prototypes [was Re: Patch for bugs 772 and 17913]

Take 2:

Works for me, though, at the risk of being annoying:

there seems to be a contradiction between the first and second sentences; do we require portability to old compilers or not? I think at this point we require portability to non-standard libraries, but not non-standard compilers.
