The ICC is wrong.  If they are supporting a GNU extension, they
must do it the same way GNU does it, to actually be supporting

The main issue here is that any reader of the object file, not
just, will be unable to differentiate [0] vs. [1].

What does ICC do for "[]"?  Is it '1' also, or is it '0', like
it's supposed to be?

I, for one, would not be unhappy to see the GCC-ism fade into
