I vaguely remember that thread, but I didn't pay very close
attention to it at the time.  We're probably starting a new
ARM9 project and will have to maintain existing ARM7 projects
for some time. So, I thought I'd fire up "search" and
review that thread.  Alas, search on is broken (has
been for a couple days now).  I don't suppose anybody remembers
how long ago that was discussed?
