I'd rather avoid this complexity.  Isn't it easy enough to abort based
on the value of ac_cv_prog_cc_c89 (or whatever)?

That would be helpful, once you have the papers signed etc.

We also need a patch to doc/autoconf.texi and to NEWS.

Can you please also check for the following features?

  variable declarations in for loops
  last member of a struct may be an incomplete array type
  varargs macros
  named initialization of structs
  variable length arrays
  long long

These are all features that C99-ish programs are likely to want.

This isn't quite right.  It should try for C99 mode, and failing that
it should try for C89 mode.
