Non-portable. Not a good fix. Nice to know it exists though, thanks.

These are both good ideas, but I'm leery of letting scripts modify 1000+
lines of code in this manner. I don't think there's an easy way to fix this
properly. It's best to just let it slide for now, perhaps worry about it
I'm almost positive this is a bug in the C compiler. Perhaps
I'll take umbrage with the gcc folk.
