Darn, missed the Win-CE port...
Otherwise, I think this is OK (given a

I would expect, something like:
All ARM targets using the legacy FPA floating-point format have been
obsoleted. These include the ARM ports for FreeBSD, Linux (old ABI),
ucLinux (old ABI), rtems (old ABI), Ecos, Win-CE and the old ELF
I'm a bit unhappy about the general wording there. I don't particularly
want these ports reviving. I'd rather see configurations that don't use
the FPA format floats being contributed. Suggestions?
