Additionally, the exceptions for using the GCC runtime library for 
non-GPL executables
is limited to what hey call "eligible compilation processes", what 
rules out using
proprietary GCC plugins or other combinations of core GCC functionality 
with non-GPL
tooling and extensions.
Please note that this is indeed not tested in court. Therefore, reality 
may turn out
even more interesting. That's why a lawyer's answer should always be 
"it depends". :)
