As long as you realize that:

void foo(int i) {
   int a[i];

is a VM object (has a VLA type) and is C++ code in the sense that it  
is compiled by g++, which happens to be not in the C++ language (yet),  
but is in the gnu C++ language.

I propose that we treat VLAs as VLAs and non-VLAs by a name other than  
VLA?!  I shudder to think anyone would want something different.   
Surely I must misunderstand something.
