I'm not arguing the rest of your points, but I'm curious about 
this one. IIRC, the last thing a full bootstrap of GCC does,
after building stage one binaries with the native compiler,
stage two binaries with the stage one binaries and stage
three binaries with the stage two binaries, is compare the
stage two and stage three binaries. If they're not the
same, then you have a problem. I don't see how this fits
with what you're saying.
