No, what he means is that I removed the only occurence of "restrict" in
Speex (not that it was removed from C99). I did that temporarily for
compatibility reasons and because it didn't help much anyway. I'll
probably re-introduce it later with "#define restrict" for compilers
that don't support it.

I usually compile with -ansi once in a while to fix this. I've
reorganizing code lately, which is why it appeared. So, in summary, I do
intend to fix this and make sure Speex remains C89-compatible.
