If it were to become the default, could it be on a per
architecture/machine basis?

I don't want cpp, cc1 and the assembler to be swapped in/out everytime
a chunk of kilobytes is handed from one to the other on my
eight-megabyte Amiga...

Otherwise I agree this is a perfectly good option on computers with a
fair amount of RAM.

Kind regards,
