The sad part is that if we allow that, we also get that *other* insane
C99 variable thing - mixing variables and code.

I *like* getting warnings for confused people who start introducing
variables in the middle of blocks of code. That's not well-contained
like the loop variable.

That said, most of the stuff in C99 are extensions that we used long
before C99, so I guess we might as well just add the stupid flag. And
discourage people from mixing declarations and code other ways (sparse
etc).
