Yeah, it is a good idea. I'm sorry for not backing Tom F. when he
brought it up internally.
I thought that we'd have problems with the C++ ABI, but it occurs to
me now that splitting the RPMs and breaking the ABI are different
issues. There's no reason to assume that they are related.

Once we switch to ecj I think we should go even further. We should
make -findirect-dispatch the default and we should push
C++-ABI-breaking changes. The only difficulty here is that frysk
uses the C++ ABI.
