The poll should be on a web somewhere so that everybody could click
there. But good to know first No/No answer.

I never said Frank would be a prob. He has been and still is doing a
tremendous job on maintaining FreeMiNT. But recently we've had a
discussion about GCC 3.x in this list and Frank convinced us easily that
upgrading to GCC 3.x would be so much work and pain that it doesn't pay
off. So I thought I'd mention it here so that the GCC patch for
-mbaserel wouldn't look so unreal.
