For practical purposes, shareable code is here already.  I do all my arm26
builds with a compiler that defaults to -march=armv3 -mapcs-32.  There's a
small glitch in the area of exception handling, which Richard will be
fixing Real Soon Now, but I don't think any in-tree binaries are affected.

Yes, they would.  Feel like working on them?
