The bigger problem is that people are trying to take this compiler
beyond what makes sense (to me). I'm not sure we're going to cease to
exist if we don't have arrays.

If romcc can't do something, then work around it; we can warn people
about no arrays. But given that nobody has the time to really support
romcc (as, e.g., gcc or llvm are supported) we're taking some real
risks just plugging changes in.
