That's interesting. I thought the augmentation string used by the GNU
toolchain are purely a GNU extension. Is that not so?
Depends on what you mean by "purely". If you mean we control them, then
yes, they are purely GNU.
However, i'm pretty sure they were discussed (as were other extensions) on
the reflector before they were implemented, so as not to cause gratuitous
problems with other extensions, etc.
I'm sure Jason Merrill can correct me if i'm wrong about this.
