Nevertheless, Florian's proposal seems to me like the optimal solution.

As far as I can see the compiler just needs to simply write a small 
block with the needed info in the generated executable. 
The RTL just needs to match this.

That this changes from time to time, I consider much less of a problem.
The .ppu files also change regularly, that is just how things are...

As soon as a new platform appears you need to wait for libffi etc;
the correct version needs to be installed and whatnot. 
I doubt this will cause less problems.
