Isn't it amazing how much people trust compilers?

I had the most problems, at least recently, with early 4.x  
compilers.  They were doing all kinds of things wrong.

It's really kind of scary because it is hard to verify compilers, few  
companies offer it as a service, and it can have severe impact on  
everything it touches.

The commercial compilers that seem to be well policed are expensive  
and not widely available.

It would be nice if this situation could be changed, but it has been  
a long time now and that still hasn't happened.

Seems the few companies that tried didn't fare too well.
