One of the nice things about gcc is that gcc usually still works, long after a
vendor has abandoned a machine. I rather like that gcc will just work, unlike
vendor software, which often says, please buy a new machine. One doesn't have
to remove support in gcc for something, just because a vendor doesn't support
it. That said, truly crufty things, should go.
