It doesn't matter which compiler I use because we explicetly make sure that 
this particular feature is off (you can always grep for -Werror=declaration-
after-statemant to double-check). Both make and scons builds do that and those 
are the only build systems we use. You can use either one to verify. For 
better or worse we use compile flags that give us straight out of the box 
portability across platforms (in particular windows) and while it might change 
soon for now it is the way it is.

Yes, that'd be good.
