thanks, but I don't think that answers any of the questions.
Specifically, my last question was about the 'version' argument to the
gcc.init() function. Is it used to identify a compiler by version ? Or
can it be an arbitrary string / discriminator I use to configure
compilers with different flags (e.g. `--std=c++11` vs. `--std=c++03`) ?
