No, I chose the wrong word for that.
Definitely it makes it easier to extend structs and enums, but why
leave it there?
Code is written wronce and read many times. I don't know about you, but
it confuses me when there's a trailing comma.
It's actually non-defined behaviour according to the standard. It'd be
ok if the standard said it was arbitrary if there are trailing commas
or not, but at the moment, the compiler is just generous enough to
ignore it and just pops a warning with -pedantic.
