I found that remark hugely rude and inappropriate. No one has ever
come up with a reason why we need to use the same compiler for all
targets, and when a port only has a few maintainers then why the hell
is anything happening to code for that target without an OK from the
people who own the device.

I am equally annoyed at the change to ACTUAL TARGET CODE WHICH WAS
UNTESTED! http://svn.rockbox.org/viewvc.cgi?view=rev;revision=26832 If
that happens in the future then send an email to the dev mailing list
(or the maintainer) or create a bug for it, NEVER commit code to
target which you personally cant test on when it is a hardware
specific change.
