The userspace ABI is stable, but the toolchain is in flux, for example
the recent changes in floating point size will probably cause some
problems, and I see inconsistencies between gcc and binutils every
time that I attempt new versions.

I think that I should publish my work so far, maybe it's useful to
you.  I meant to be do it months ago, but $REAL_LIFE happened in
betweeen... :)

I think that this should be the default target (unless we want have
several ABIs), minus the C extension.

If there's some Linux-capable hardware released with 32 bits we might
attempt that, but haven't heard any news so far.
