No because there is only one distribution and one source code set.

Because there are still a lot of people using old compilers, frequently to 
maintain existing
applications but also to develop new ones, even with Delphi 1 which is used for 
embedded systems
using Win 3.x !!

The price to support old compilers is cheap. Just look how many conditional 
compile are in the
current sources: not so much.
