As an aside, the MSVC team has said that they never intend to
push MSVC past C89, but, that they do fully intent to support, in their
C++ compiler, the subset of C that exists in C++11 and C++14.
They (or at least Herb Sutter) recommend that
"C developers use the C++ compiler to compile C code (using /TP if
the file is named something.c). This is the best choice for using
Visual C++ to compile C code."
But doing so in Cairo would like lead to a bunch of warnings and
errors about casting.
