I've got a patch that implementes 0b binary numbers for GCC (including

anything that would make it illegal to provide such an extension.

Yes I believe they would. You (or I :) ) could always try. Usually the gcc team is very easy to convince while others you have to really fight. If the patch is simple and clean, I guess that this wont be a problem at all. This is only about extending gcc's feature and the likeliness to introduce regressions/bugs are low.

( I just remembered that the author of this patch needs an copyright assignment with FSF to enable checkin into gcc, regardless of who proposes the patch to GCC. Who's the author? )
