It's probably cruder than you think. It's just a list of the compilers
that the release branch is tested with. I demote to secondary any
compilers that aren't a stable release, which is why clang isn't well
represented. I'd also demote any which have a lot of failures,
although I don't think I've done that for a while. I wouldn't be
surprised if I'm a bit inconsistent.
