Well, in the goal of better software, I'm willing to use closed source
compilers.  I like finding bugs that way, *before* getting bug

And yes, the ARM compiler has some *strange* defaults...  Whomever
picked their defaults didn't do ARM favors, even if it if they might be
conformant to the C standard....
