To clarify, anything not checked in on gcc.gnu.org somewhere must be
assumed to be copyright Apple, not copyright FSF, and has not been
contributed, and Apple has no plans to contribute more code. However,
anything on gcc.gnu.org has been contributed.
I understand that the main issue is that Apple objects to GPLv3, but
the exact reason doesn't necessarily matter that much.
