No, that makes sense. I'll see if I can get this to go with the 'old'
compiler first.

Not being able to compile projects that work fine in FB will
(severely) limit the potential testers pool. I don't have time to
first adopt a project to compile from the command line with the old
compiler and then test the new one, except for test projects, maybe.
But test projects will always be very simple, while we'll need the
ability to test large, involved projects most of all.
