As I read your comments, especially these:

I would find it awesome if tinycc would restrict its source to C89.

2017 - 1989 = 28.

Twenty-Eight Years. It would be kinda nice to move forward. Will we stick to 
C89 simply because of certain platforms that may never move forward? It's kinda 
like tying stones to one's legs. Or a lowest common denominator scenario.

You were suggesting to abandon the "old" or "legacy" support.


The discussion was on tcc bootstrapping.

The question I was posing was whether tcc should be tied to a commitment to a 28 year old standard.

English can be a very ambiguous language. A tiny thought can lead to tunnel vision down one of many supposedly plausible paths.

If I misunderstood, please forgive me.
