Nope.  I can program in assembly language and and very comfortable with
it, so I do not worry in the least bit about the C30 port of GCC.  That
is not at all the point.

Use of the word "whining" projects an unfair picture, and kind of
implies that I am unhappy about it all.  I am not unhappy.  I am just
saying that what we have here is not the C language.  Fine.  I can live
with that.  But why not come right out and say it???

Actually, I thought it was all quite reasonable. :-)  A bit of a thrust
toward windmills, true, but still reasonable.
