Hi Elijah,
I'm not a maintainer but as far as I see, I vote a big YES for your patch.

I think it would be a good idea.  As far as I can tell, the current c2x
draft (http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg14/www/docs/n2596.pdf) entails
the following compiler changes:

+ void f(int) {} (N2480)
+ single-argument _Static_assert (N2265) (already implemented) get rid 
+ of k&r definitions (N2432)
   + also: void foo(){} is equivalent to void foo(void){}.  The meaning of
     void foo() (just a prototype) is unchanged + allow labels to precede
     declarations (e.g. lb: int x;) (N2508) + 'true' and 'false' have type
     bool (N2393)
   - use of booleans in arithmetic expressions is 'deprecated'; consider
     emiting warnings?
+ support binary literals (N2549, already supported as a gnu ext.
   Actually as a 'tcc ext', but it's a gnu ext)
- u8'x' -> (unsigned char)'x' (N2418)
   - u8"", U"" et al (from c11) are already not supported, need to add them
- mixed-type literal concatenation is now illegal (u"" U"" is an error;
   "" u"" is fine though.  See above) (N2594)
- Change rules about conversions of pointers to qualified arrays (N2607)
- [[attributes]] (N2335)

I've attached a patch implementing the changes marked '+'.  Currently
they're all guarded behind -std=c2x, but perhaps that should be limited to
the backwards-incompatible ones?
