It's still in current debian unstable, so it's not totally dead.
Using it guards against some c99-isms (local variables in the middle
of functions) so it has some use for development.

Doesn't look so evil as to cause a bug itself ...

I put mine conditionalized precisely to gcc==2.95, so as to restrict
its effect.  All this sort of thing is pretty ugly, but at least if
it's tightly delimited then it's clear what you can rip out in 10
years time.
