The "Apache" standard, I guess ;-).  For better or worse, the basic goal 
for apreq-dev@ is to have our code compiling and running on every 
platform that httpd supports.  If their headers aren't ANSI compliant, 
then we need to drop that warning flag also.  I won't put the
"-isystem" thing into our build, so please try to find some
happy medium on the new warning flags.

And be sure to test them with --enable-maintainer-mode also, because 
that's what I use.  That should turn warnings into errors (-Werror),
and in your previous patch some of the "function not inlined" warnings 
prevented a full compile for me.

I use gcc-3.3, if it helps any.  Other folks may use the 2.9x version.
Other platforms may not use gcc at all.  We can accept tighter requirements
for --enable-maintainer-mode compiles, but an ordinary compile should 
try to be warnings-free on any supported platform.
