Yes, the current version of "gcc.l" will not work any longer :-(

It is possible to design a similar mechanism, writing inline assembly
instead of C, and calling 'as' instead of 'gcc'. But I'm not sure if
this is the right way to go.

In any case, I have a concept of a generic call to C functions in
arbitrary external libraries.

And I'm sure we will have plenty of other ideas when time comes ;-)

Yes, I don't see 3.0 in production use for the near future, and I'll
support both versions as long as they are needed. I can probably not
switch all my customers to another version anyway.
