i have my doubts about this. with the flexibility that c++
compile-time flags provide, i'm not sure one can ever talk about "a
stable ABI" for c++ code, even if the compiler itself never changes
it. when used with a dynamic (run-time) linker, things go wrong very
quickly unless all the binaries are known to be compiled "identically".
