I'm relatively new to this list.  I heard of this compiler, and am mostly
curious about having a C compiler that can output code for Apple IIs..
(actually I'm more interested in the lcc I heard about, to hopefully
produce Apple IIGS binaries..)

but anyway -- dumb question..

Could you at least make it so that attempts to do the above un-supported
things were COMPILER ERRORS, if they don't do it now?  I mean, instead of
generating bogus code, at least recognizing what it can't do, and stopping
compilation would be good.
