I forgot, I'm not interested in using C, so SDCC is out of the question.
I don't think anyone is actively developing a Z80 port for the trunk.
I spec'd one out a long time ago for Cygnus/Red Hat, but we never
pursued the port. The register model on the z80 will be problematical,
though some of the lessons from the rl78 port would probably be useful.
I'm sure there's other z80 things that are going to cause problems, I
just can't remember what they all are. I've managed to forget almost
all my Z80 internals over the last 25+ years.
