I'm implementing tcc based on the outdated draft I was able to find, because 
it's what I have.  If I'm directly told I can't legally use that then I'll be 
implementing tcc based on what programs do and don't compile, and scew the 
standards committee too behind the times to put their darn standard on the 
web in a way that's compatible with open source development.

I realize that they want to restrict their relevance as much as possible, and 
thus have no _official_ version freely available on the web.  I seriously 
hope that whatever the next version of the C standard is has nothing to do 
with people who fail to get it that spectacularly.
