As mentioned/asked in
our GCC/ARM port for RISC OS which is using for one of its multilib
variants FPA (to interface with the SharedCLibrary used in RISC OS).
Other multilib variants are soft-float and VPF.  I would like to keep
the FPA support in gcc 4.8.

I'm wondering if the removal of FPA is really necessary.  Does FPA support
prevent future ARM improvements in GCC ?
