I meant that both "bool" types are meant to be ABI compatible. (And it
holds up even on Windows with MSVC vs. GCC.)

But yeah, this would at least require including the correct header for
whatever language is used, and C would be forced to at least C99.

(FFmpeg uses C99 though.)

Anyway, getting offtopic. A build failure seems a bit like a deal
breaker, and maybe the strcpy should be killed.
