The problem is (1) not all compilers support inline, (2) the ones that
do have divergent ideas on its semantics, and (3) the semantics
specified by C99 utterly suck (cf tuplesort.c).  gcc's traditional
semantics for inline are far more usable.  We have done "#ifdef gcc"
inlines in one or two places where the performance argument for adding
such clutter was compelling.  We can do that some more, but you'll need
equally compelling arguments.  Do not bother submitting patches to
create a very large number of inlines.
