Good question!  Since Emacs 25 requires C99, I think it's reasonable for
us to also require C99 *internally*, but whether we can reasonably
assume C99 in our public headers is far less clear.  Existing programs
that include <libguile.h> might have conflicting requirements for the C
dialect options passed to the compiler.  Even if there's no conflict,
developers may resent being asked to change their C dialect options.
