(Even GCC doesn't fully implement it, though thankfully the holes are
now pretty small and esoteric.) Making a program require C99,
therefore, relegates it to mainstream, modern systems.

For this particular feature, the "flag date" is June 18, 2001 (when GCC 3.0 was released). It's still almost 9 years old.

Are there any serious porting targets that do not support GCC 3.0?
