Microsoft still don't care in the slightest about C. The only reason
that they have finally added support for some elements of C99 is because
it is a normative reference in C++ 11. As they are keen on claiming a
high degree of conformance with C++ 11 for marketing purposes, they
have to implement some of the things they have been ignoring for a long

Don't expect any C support in MSVC that isn't required by C++ standards.
