Furrfu.  It's getting to the point where it's difficult to find
identifiers that _aren't_ reserved.

...until some genius of a language committee decides *addr should be
reserved too, at which point it will magically become buggy again?

No, I think it's the spec that's buggy here.  Especially when they
preempt something as widespread and useful as _t.

_[A-Z]*, __*, E*, *_t, probably a bunch more I've never heard
is the poor application author supposed to know?
