and your point is?

Are you trying to say that s/building/porting/ between compilers is 
going to magically make the software (have less bugs, more performance 
or better robustness)  Porting could be a means-to-an-end, but still 
it's not an end goal.. I'm digging at what's the end goal.. After it's 
all ported what magically happens?
