That would be a neat featurette. I often do this just to sanity check
things sometimes. To expand on that, would it be just invoking gcc with
standard options for just a syntax check? Would you have a "quick
compile" configuration ui? I also presume it would it be smart enough to
say invoke arm-Linux-gnu-gcc over the native compiler through the target

Agree again. It would wonderful to have a one to many target model; in
many projects it would be a necessity. I'd like to read up on the logic
for an against. I remember some time back a conversation (last year I
think) that Sebastian raised on the target markets; IE predominately
native platform developers over cross-platform etc. Both have differing
needs and maybe the target model is where these needs would really need
