A former employer of mine (whom I still consult for on occasion) still
makes heavy use of armeb-coff toolchains.  Granted, we haven't updated
the versions of binutils and gcc for quite a while, but if/when we need
to, I want that support there.  That particular set of target platforms,
however, is strictly big-endian, so I didn't set up multi-libbing at
all.  I just made the toolchain and libraries pure BE.

So please take that as a data point -- armeb-coff still in active use.
ARM7TDMI core in case it matters to anyone.
