Assuming always declaring %language will be the recommended right way to 
use Bison, I'd say it's simpler if ".tab" is always dropped in that case 
regardless of the output language.  If I understood Paolo's last message 
about DJGPP (which I know nothing about), it also means %language would 
make Bison grammars more portable.

However, I suppose I'm outvoted, and this just isn't worth the time for my 
purposes, so I'll drop it.
