IMHO, it would be useful in such cases to specify which platform you are 
talking about, so others can get a better picture of:
* whether the change affects them personally,
* how many affected users we are talking about, and most importantly
* whether there is any chance to get a fix or workaround in the near future
  (or even right now), either in the form of an upgrade to the vendor
  compiler or in the form of a third-party compiler (e.g., GCC or Clang,
  which both support many platforms).

That said, I am *not* objecting to desupporting obscure proprietary 
platforms with outdated compilers. I am just asking for more transparency.
