Well, once I get egcs working, we're going to have to break
compatibility and redo everything using versioning. It would make
sense to switch to -mapcs-float at the same time, I guess.
Corel's going to have to break compatibility to switch to versioning
as well, so it would be a good time to introduce it as the default.
I'm not sure about ARM Linux compatibility. That's still a.out,
