You're confusing that with binary constants, that are introduced by
the string "0b".  I've eventually been able to convince the GCC folks
to accept that as a general extension, so it's now no longer an
AVR-GCC specific hack but a generic GCC thing.  If they ever come
round to decide about a new C standard, so they can at least no longer
claim "lack of precedent" next time (which they did when someone
requested that feature for the ISO C99 standard).
