I do think this is a bad idea. See below and other mails.

(e.g. with the next major release) and
why this would be a problem for them?

To me this change sounds as reasonable as compiling all of Gtk+ as C++.

in the end, the w32 compilers are C99 compliant i'd assume and on
None of the win32 compilers I use (msvc 6.0 - 7.1, OpenWatcom latest)
is C99 compliant.

older unixes when there're no modern compilers available, there's
always a C99 compliant gcc that can be used.

Is there *any other* compiler than GCC being C99 compliant ?
