The language specification makes no reference to function-level static
variables (other than in the grammar production rules). Static member variables
and functions are mentioned in the "Attributes" page.

That page should (at a minimum) specify that:

- Local variables with the static storage class have a lifetime that extends
beyond the function call.
- It should mention when and how they are initialised (before main, or at first
use?).
- It should clarify whether statics with the same name, but different block
scopes are allowed. i.e.

void main()
{
    { static int x; }
    { static int x; } // allowed?
}
