I am not in favor on a technical basis.  Too much complication for too
little win.

Stan often points out that there are political issues here, too, regarding
Apple maintaining it's own version of GCC.  However, if there is going

eliminating the Apple fork, then we need to get that message from the FSF;
it's not for us to judge as GCC maintainers.
