True. But as you mention, there are a couple of popular targets. For 
example, Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora/Arch/… all have an armhf distribution 
which targets ARMv7 without NEON. A binary package for that would 
already cover a huge portion of people just looking to try out LDC on 
their ARM dev board. (RP1 is of course its own thing, unfortunately.)
