Yeah, you'll need to convince all parties involved that it will not be
more work to them then they are willing to put in.  Initial development
and ongoing work, as you say.

For GCC it is probably an easy decision (but we'll see your proposed ABI
amendments): it shouldn't be much work at all, and it even benefits us
directly (it'll fill some holes in our testing matrix).
