This is misstated. VLAs are a standard feature. What you're avoiding here
is VLA members of structs and unions, which are a GNU extension.
I also don't think you're doing it the ideal way. A union of two arrays of
length one is useless. It might trigger complaints from _FORTIFY_SOURCE
or other such bounds-checking tools.
