That 6809 C implementation is clearly a "toy" since practically NO
useful existing C program can survive having ints reduced to the range

The "readonly" attribute is a non-standard extension to the language.
The ANSI C committee has come up with the similar but more general
"const" type modifier.

	extern thing;
	thing definition
does not work then that is clearly an incorrect implementation.  Out
of curiosity, what 32-bit midicomputer C exhibits this problem?
