I don't think so.  Most of the the problems that I ran into were
interleaving variable declarations into the later executable statements
in function bodies.  This is a C99 feature that the ancient version of
Visual C++ that we use barfs on.  The next most common problem was the
use of <stdint.h>, which is also not supported in that old toolchain.
