Well... back when I followed the original ANSI C meetings,
the intent was loosely described as follows:

#include <header>

was *NOT* required to include a file. <header> could be a
precompiled header file, or even could be an object hardwired
into the compiler. The implementation was *NOT* required to
disclose how to go from source.h to <header>, and was certainly
not required to implement the usual UNIX semantics of
a search path without an initial dot.

#include "source.h"

was required to be able to find and include a user's files.
