wow. It's guaranteed to not be called?
OK, I retract my guess.
Then again, I guess that comes to the different purposes of C and modern
Fortran (I'm not sure what I said applies to F90; maybe F95 & later).
Modern Fortan is designed for massive parallelism for math; offering to do
things in order would be counterproductive).
