The GNUPro-sources used to include more supported CPUs, more support for some
processor variations, more features like 'initialization prioritization' for
C++-constructors, more supported targets like 'mips64vr4100/4300/5000/5400-elf'
etc. And of course better docs and support (after paying for it).
Currently one easily sees the Mitsubishi 'd10v' CPU-support being missing in
the gcc-3.0, while the fr30 and d30v support was added there from GNUPro after
gcc-2.95.x. The now obsolete 'h8500' and 'z8k' CPUs were once supported in
GNUPro, but the support never visited in GCC...
