	I do not understand why you incorrectly insist on using such
hostile and confrontational language in your description of EGCS.  EGCS
was a testbed for some new technology which needed a larger testing
audience than the GCC development environment of the time could provide.
Both the technology and the development method used by EGCS proved
effective, so EGCS and GCC merged back together, incorporating all of the
successes of EGCS.  This is not unlike the way gcc-2 was developed and
redesigned in the late 1980's and early 1990's.
