I am currently reading a draft of the C11 specification. The new introduced keywords:
_Bool, _Alignof, _Atomic all feel like custom extensions, instead of standard reserved keywords like
struct, union, int.
I realize that the standard basically consists of standardized extensions ... but still, this is awful! Maybe we will soon end up with
__Long_Long_Reallylong_Integer_MSVC_2020_t creeping in the standard!
Is the backward compatibility of nonstandard code the only reason of the new style of the keywords?
