Liberty is the GNU eiffel compiler, so we have one obvious obligation:
GCC. All others are nice to have and we can drop them if none here
raises his or her voice and uses another one in a real project. -> as
soon as we have users caring about backward compatibility I wouldn't
want to drop them. Otherwise I'd vote for simplicity...
