Ada has fixed point types in the language. There has been some
newsgroup discussion about ARM support for the GNAT Ada compiler
supported within the gcc system. I'm not sure if anyone has followed
through. But it will probably be much easier to port the Ada runtime
than to hack C/C++ to include non-standard types.
