I feel that M3 and friends might be worth investing in thumb support for 
"embedded" devices. But I understand that the more relevant targets for 
ARM-FPC seem to be Smartphones, Tablet PCs, mini-Servers and upcoming 
high performance cortex A15 Servers. Her I feel that thumb does not make 
much sense, while most legacy ARM hardware does not _need_ thumb based 
software, even it would be able to run it.

Just my version of the rule of thumb. :)
