I briefly wondered what "otherwise" and "it" in "silently parses it"
refer to; it is having a hanging semicolon after the definition of
the *_peek() function, i.e.

        static int *indegree_peek(...)
                return indegree_at_peek(s, c, 0);

so all is fine.

Needless to say, using "struct slabname;" is indeed a much nicer
solution you found to the original issue.  Thanks.
