Hmmm... That's got me thinking... perhaps a compiler compliancy matrix could
be maintained in an XML file. It could be viewable from the website by using
a simple stylesheet. The configuration header file(s) could be generated
from the XML using an XSTL stylesheet too!
Personally I think this would be an excellent tool, but what do others
