The difference with threads is that we know all platforms have some
kind of threading, so we know that we can adapt the code when
needed. I don't think any other C compiler supports local functions
(even g++ doesn't AFAIK), so there won't be much hope of ever making
it work. Of course we could decide to stop supporting other compilers,
but I don't think everybody would be happy with that.

Sure, we can make the macros available for Winelib.
