Ahh, but I never actually found it until I got hold of the
postscript output from the GCC info sources and made me a
dead tree edition. Mind you, I really did it for the stuff
on porting to different architectures, but it was Christmas,
I was in Roscommon, I was bored... So I read the whole thing.
There are a _lot_ of things that GCC will let you do that
are non-standard. The Linux kernel depends on a whole bunch
of them, in fact.
And the day I confuse Caolan will be a day of much rejoicing
and celebration :-)
