Not you, it's Richard Earnshaw. :-)

Richard Earnshaw wants me to put the heuristics in gcc.c and pass it
to cc1 (et al) via specs using -param commands.  This has the
advantage in that bug reports with the output of gcc -v testcase.c
will show the memory heuristics used also, in case that is relevant to
triggering the bug.

Geoff Keating thinks that adds too much complexity for no gain and
want it to remain as posted in the original patch.

Both gentlemen are have global write approval so at the moment I am
stuck.  Feel free to break the tie.
