ANSI doesn't require it, but most compilers I have worked with support it,
at least up to about 10,000 elements. I haven't tried beyond there. One
exception is (was?) Microsoft's compiler with debugging symbols - I think
the limit is around 4000 elements.

Passing machine-generated code through a compiler is a good way to uncover
compiler bugs. If you have to target a large number of C compilers, it can
be difficult to generate code so that it works with all compilers.
