Not getting updates (new features/fixes for known/yet-unknown issues).
And then there is the question of morality.
There already exists an *implicit*, dare I say *natural* test
that decides whether a compiler is supported or not
(on a per-library or even per-library-feature basis --
and this paranthesis is important).
Why should we draw *artificial* lines in a centralized manner ? And on
what basis do we draw those lines ?
