I have programs which run on many quite different systems, including
embedded SoC systems as well as huge UNIX clusters. While I am happy
to get access to all the special resources (at least for the few
time-critical parts), I am even more happy to have common base which is
likely to work everywhere.

I think that trying hard to push things into C compliance is very well
worth it, the result being compliant implementation where possible and
clear documentation of even slight divergencies for the rest.
