That draft needs some work. Ralf added notes to each item that
essentially says "don't need it. don't want it."

I'd tend to agree with him on everything but the package naming (I think
having the "cross-" prefix fits in with our existing naming policies),
but I'm not married to it. If the people packaging cross toolchains are
vehemently against that naming, it would be good to know.
