Well, depends of what you call older: gcc < 2.7 doesn't. Anyway you  
are right, it is certainly not useful, but let's say it won't hurt to  
try to to follow the ANSI-C standard. It's like XHTML Strict vs XHTML  
Transitional (or HTML 4.0 Transitional). Both are supported by web  
browsers, but most (or good ;-) ) web developers try to follow the  
Strict rules.

Also it improves my reading of the sources :P

Sorry again if you find this really annoying, in this case please  
notify me.
