One other comment on the inadvisability of 6-character uppercase externs:

****************** ANSI COMMITTEE, PLEASE LISTEN ********************

So doing will make ``ANSI Standard C'' ***incompatible*** with Berkeley
(and other major, i.e. System V) C.  Which forms of C constitute the
vast majority of C programs, even in their non-Unix-specific programs.
Put that braindamage in C, and you lose all the benefits of having C.
Use something else instead; don't waste your time.
