The other thing I'd like to see is more back-ends. If you're into programming alternative systems (old consoles/computers, embedded systems, etc), you're only real choice is GCC.


While not C/C++/Fortran, FPC (Free Pascal) does have quite a few backends. But perhaps you meant a different specific kind of cpu.
