I don't see this as likely, as I don't see any such features on the
horizon.  (I am excluding gets, which we don't want to be encouraging anyway.)

But gcc normally doesn't define __STDC_VERSION__.  Granted,
gcc --std=gnu11 does define it, but all in all __STDC_VERSION__
is a bit squirrelly and I'd rather not be using it as part of a test.
