Just for the record:
The RPC/XDR facility violates the alias rules
(I don't think current gcc exploits it, though).
This is a bit more complex because it involves
the XDR library [which dereferences a non-compliant
alias] and the 'rpcgen' ('host-tool') program that
generates non-compliant source code.
Just to illustrate that IMHO a *lot* of code is affected
in obscure ways.
