[Monetdb-developers] [PATCH] Loop Lifted Pathfinder sources

Thanks for the addition. It has always been our objective to
compile on many platforms easily, even if this requires a slight
adjustment of our personal coding styles. (// comments, declaration
order, indenting,...)

So I sincerely hope (expect ;-))that someone from the pathfinder
team takes over the step taken by Fabian and remove the C99
specifics. It is a one-day job with great benefit for
the community.

I am looking forward to the next check-in.
