Do you think that all RV64G hardware, at least the one able to run a
general purpose OS ("not embedded"), will also support C?
I think that it'll depend on the people implementing the hardware, and
that the Foundation doesn't have much say on that, unless they try and
have the power to strongarm companies into always implementing C.
