The reasons I suggested open64 are:
a) It seems to use GCC front end so porting software should be easy
while there should be some performance gain.
b) Christopher Bergström at osunix.org is interested in implementing
dtrace probe in the FORTRAN compiler. See http://www.open64.net/home/events/gsoc10.html
c) LLVM/CLANG does not support FORTRAN yet.
I like SS as well. I think the move is for the distant future in case
