Hopefully we'll find out tomorrow but I think I vaguely remember an issue with the Studio compilers and this type of initialization style.

Done. I added the module orte/mca/debugger/dummy and I will remove it tomorrow.

+1 on Ralph and George's comments.

Want to make a dummy component somewhere that uses this kind of initialization and see what happens?  Put a test for the C99 initialization style in configure.m4 to see if it works or not; MTT will then check this for all the compilers that we care about.

I believe the majority of structs used in OMPI are actually declared to be opal objects of some flavor, so I'm not sure how much this will actually accomplish. Other than that, I have no real objection - either way works fine for me.

I'm with you on that. Let's create a fake module using the ISO C99 naming scheme, and leave it to MTT to figure out where is breaks!

I don't know if this has been discussed before or if this will break Windows (or some obscure platform) support but I would like to start using the ISO C99 style for struct initialization (see section 6.7.8, example 10 in http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg14/www/docs/n1124.pdf). Using this style would make mca code much easier to read. Any thoughts? Would this break something?

Example:
struct module_foo {
    char *bar;
    int   baz;
};

struct foo foobar = {
    .bar = "foobar",
    .baz = 1
};
