1.5 Variable Declaration

All variables should be declared at the beginning of a block. The new C99 standard (and gcc 3.X) allow variables to be declared anywhere in a block, including after executable code. However, in order to be compatible with older compilers, all GNUstep programs should keep the old behaviour.

Certainly we would consider it a bug to introduce code into the GNUstep libraries which stopped them compiling with one of the commonly used compilers.
