just because they don't know what sits at back of their compiler? :)

someone tells me, that only 2.5 front-ends remain - comeau, gcc and
probably MS. all other compilers use comeau, which is not full compiler but
just front-end

there is old joke that camel is a horse created by committee. Algol-68,
Pl/1, Ada and now C++ becomes such large languages that no one can master
them in full details
