Clearly it'll be 3.5+ only, and clearly it'll be a specific list of 
features ("C89 but also permitting //-comments, variadic macros, 
variable declarations on any line, inline functions, and designated 
initializers").  But I'm looking forward to it!

We already had macros for inline (e.g. Py_LOCAL_INLINE), maybe we can 
remove those.
