So basically, you're saying that K&R-style functions (non-prototyped)
aren't handled in a pre-prototype manner any more? That's a fairly
extreme change of how C used to work. While I understand such a
change, it's going to break quite a lot of things that still have
non-prototyped functions.

Can you provide something in the C standard that supports this change?
