There are often area's where the standard says it is not required or
undefined yet a majority of vendors DO allow it as is the case here I
In effect it becomes a de-facto but unofficial standard. Remember we as
programmers tend to be lazy,
if it works on most compilers we tend to expect it to work on all of them.
