Well, for me as a project admin, I'd would also be nice to be able to  
support as many platforms as possible. Hence my question, which  
wasn't really answered, so I'll repeat it:

Can those old platforms be supported if we readd use of "__attribute__ 
((packed))", or by using yet another compiler extension for packing  
structs which might be available on one of the compilers we use? Or  
is the only way out to completely get rid of these packed structs?
