FWIW the new POSIX standard forms the core of the Single Unix Specification v3

POSIX_CORRECT could be taken to imply SUSLY_CORRECT. So I don't think
SUSLY_CORRECT is needed. (I get the impression you weren't serious, but...).

I checked a draft of new POSIX and the SUSv3 docs downloadable from the Open
Group and they appear to have the same defintions of popdef, pushdef,
