I think these two are different things. For example, MSVC do support
'long double', it is a different type than 'double', but sizeof(long
double) == sizeof(double).
Also look at CPython's objimpl.h, union _gc_head, you will see an
unprotected usage of 'long double', so it seems that CPython requires
that the C compiler to support 'long double'.
