So the more people that can compile and run the software, the 
more unbreakable the code can be made.. This seems to 
meld with what John was saying.. About applying code analysis 
tools and compiling it with other compilers to locate problems.. 

I didn't understand the intent of the discussion.. Its a necessary 
part I guess in refactoring the code?
