   I was talking to an M3 guru, myself, and he indicated that the
SRC Modula-3 compiler (which he had extended as a commercial product
and now plans to release as "open source") used a gcc-2.7.x back
end for generating code. However, there were still some platform-specific
changes to the compiler proper to support different platforms. The
toughest part may be getting decent thread support, which I've been
hoping for for some time.

p.s. I don't play anything on TV, but I have dabbled in compilers
     at times.
