[Applied to WP at the February, 2014 meeting.]

Proposed resolution (November, 2013):

An implementation shall not predefine the main function. This function shall not be overloaded. It shall have a return type of type int, but otherwise its type is implementation-defined.
All implementationsshall allow both
a function of () returning int and
a function of (int, pointer to pointer to char) returning int
as the type...
