In fact I am not sure about what the M4K variant exactly means.

I read about other variants needing more dummy instructions (delay 
slots) after conditional branches (M4K needs one, AFAIK) This of course 
is relevant for the compiler.

I took a look at


Here the PIC32 as a "deeply embedded target" is not mentioned. IMHO this 
is a very relevant use for the FPC MIPS compiler and should be added at 
least as a "todo".

(I could provide some PIC32 / Microchip IDE knowledge if appropriate.)
