For my upcoming project: I (of course) do have a gcc4 compiler for that
processor. Would dragonegg now allow generating code for the processor
from FPC sources ?

IMHO it would be a great advantage for FPC to be able to generate code
for any processor supported by gcc. Maybe this even forks for 16 Bit
CPUs (lately here I saw a Request to generate code for PIC).
