__fastcall__ does something that is not doable with standard C. The question
is if the requested feature is something that cannot be done in any way using
standard C. If so, then it's comparable to __fastcall__.

Please note that I'm not against your request. In fact, since I cannot access
this Microsoft page, I have no idea how these "arrays with unspecified size"
should behave, so I cannot take a position. Maybe you can also state how this
feature differs from "flexible array members" in the new standard (C99).
