Will there be problems for EBCDIC systems? AFAIK, C++ dropped support
for EBCDIC the moment there was no IBM representative in WG14. But C
still supports it.


P.S.: A related topic, but far less ambitious: Would it make sense to
add @ and $ to the basic source character set
(http://www.colecovision.eu/stuff/proposal-basic-_at_[hidden])? AFAIK, this
should work for implementations that use ASCII (or an extension, such as
UTF-8) as well as those that use an EBCDIC code page that can be used
for C programming today.
