What have they added? I recall hearing of someone doing some language
that requires a runtime with garbage collection and trying to call it
C, which to my mind would be a huge mistake - is that C11?

It'd certainly be an interesting experiment to take C and add
polymorphism and nothing else. I've occasionally wished for it myself,
though admittedly not often - between gcc's additions and my own
addition I find it rich enough for most of my purposes. (I really
should build my own compiler for it, someday, though.)
