Thanks for that slightly sad news :-) Had always imagined this behaviour
to be a linker issue and therefore never went looking in <insert standard>.

When you say "some implementations" is this a significant percentage
of "well-known" compiler+linker environments? Interested because of
current commitment to the behaviour. Was imagining that it was
reasonably portable.
