This asks for a small comment:
If (one day) it should be possible to use fpc functions as code callable
by C a function maintained in the Microchip IDE universe (which is what
I some day hope top be able to use or make happen), it should be
possible to call the C rtl floating point emulation instead of re-doing
them in the fpc rtl.
