Hmm, I guess that is the meaning.  It seems strange that it isn't
just explicitly stated like in C99.  Once you start reading about
scopes and declarative regions, it only gets more confusing.

As I initially read the standard, yes, but I think you've persuaded
me the standard does require a new scope.
