  1) at least gcc supports it (we will have to maintain the #define for
     those that are not C99 I think)

  2) gdb handles it

I also have another proposal. Dmitry and I are going to convert the
prior code gen framework from ASE to pure Python. I consider ASE a failed
experiment, but the code gen is still useful. I think we can handle some
of these situations that do not occur in user code with a generation
framework. For instance, stuff for different block sizes.
