While I don't think it is possible to guarantee that, I would agree
that this is the spirit of OpenMP.  But I would not make a statement
as strong as that -- every extension is different and should be
considered on a case by case basis.  If we find an extension that
*lots* of code depends on, then we might consider implementing that.
But in my opinion that particular if(int var = ...) extension does not
meet this bar.
