Why is "I must make available the compiler's source code"
problematic? It follows in the spirit of that clause of the GPL
which says that if you distribute binaries, you must make the source
code available. By extending it to the compiler, you ensure that
the possibly-modified cc will be available to recreate the executable.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
