gas.new can actually handle both MIT and Motorola interchangeably on a
per-operand basis, so that part of the syntax issue (unlike prefixing
registers with a `%' character) boils down to a simple matter of
style; as for having it working for ELF but not a.out, that's the
state of affairs as far as I'm concerned.
