I know, but, in my book, that's bloat.

Anyway, GCC isn't the only game in town and, looking at my crystal
ball, it's going to be blown away w/in the next 10 years by something
about 10x smaller (measured by source-code).  Lcc is most definately
not that GCC killer -- but it proves the point.

Of course, the GCC-killer is most likely to be named "GCC".
