Sounds like a great idea to start using this compiler!
Thanks for the effort of researching this.

We will probably have to come up with some kind of strategy of phasing

with this compiler on a target, start using it for the automatic builds
and see if anyone complains about breakage).

Kind regards,
Bertrik
