One of the nice things about gcc is that gcc usually still works, long after a vendor has abandoned a machine.  I rather like that gcc will just work, unlike vendor software, which often says, please buy a new machine.  One doesn't have to remove support in gcc for something, just because a vendor doesn't support it.  That said, truly crufty things, should go.
