Hm, Herb Sutter seems pretty clear about not doing C99, even to the
point of recommending using another compiler.  My point is that they
have a C++ compiler and will only implement the subset - the rest is

Which isn't too bad, actually.  The recommended practice of compiling
new C as C++ works fairly well, if you keep to that strange
ill-defined intersection.  And things like enums simply behave
differently, of course, and some assignments are no longer legal.
