The Visual Studio team has publicly stated they will never support C99, so dropping C89 blindly is going to alienate a big part of our user base unless we switch to C++ instead. I'm fine with trying to pull in C99 features, though, that we can somehow support in a backwards-compatible way with VS.
So you are saying that Python should use "the C that Visual Studio supports"? I believe Microsoft is not competent to define the C standard. If they cannot provide a compiler that is their bad. There are plenty of other standard-compliant compilers we can use, including Intel, clang and gcc (MinGW).
