MSVC doesn't support C99 because it's a C++ compiler. The languages
are divergent. (It DOES support C++11 pretty well.) Sort of silly to
be criticizing a compiler for not supporting something it never
claimed to support.

Not silly to say "well, then that compiler can't compile my code."
Because I wouldn't try to compile it with a FORTRAN compiler, either.
