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 gmane.org "search" and
review that thread. Alas, search on gmane.org is broken (has
been for a couple days now). I don't suppose anybody remembers
how long ago that was discussed?
