I'm on my way back to confusion...

What is it that the n64/32 specify for the mips compiler? pointer, integer,
register, or float size?

Do we need a feature for each of those? That is can they be specified
independantly to the compiler(s)?

Or is it safe to enforce a pointer=integer=register=float size of 16, 32, or

Or is it that speficying ilp, specifies the size of integer=long=pointer?
And therefore lp is size of integer=long.
