I thought it might be worth pointing out that this has already been done
on a large scale, in Mac OS X. That is precisely why PPC and i386 gcc

I heard this at a presentation from one of the developers involved, in
London: it was Eric Albert, at this UKUUG event:
but I can't find a copy of the slides on the web.
