Does/will gcc support REAL(16) in Fortran?

Is REAL(16) supported in Fortran? I was told that most of Fortran
compilers use IEEE 128bit quad precision for REAL(16), even on IA32
and IA64 where 128bit quad precision is not supported by hardware.
I was wondering if/when gcc would support REAL(16) on IA32/IA64 and
what format would be used.
