To me, the feature you describe sounds a lot like multilib.  It seems that
we could achieve the effects you want with a single compiler and multiple
run-time libraries and compilation options.  If I am correct then it
should be possible to leverage GCC's existing multilib support and
produce binary packages for several libraries.  Am I missing something?
