You're right.  I only have access to N1124 (the C99 final draft), but it
does allow that.  I could have sworn it was new in C11.  I'm pretty
certain it isn't allowed in C89, but I don't have access to that
standard.

I know there have been reasonably standards-conforming compilers that
have rejected it in the past, but I can't remember which ones (I think
they were for proprietary Unices).

Junio, do you want to amend the commit message before you merge it?
