 Farce is now "unsupported".  There was a batch of testing for 6.3
(? or maybe it was 6.2) - I had some iffy results (inexplicable
differences), so did archaic, and maybe others (this was all on x86).

 Before that, I'd been seeing a lot of apparent differences somewhere
in the toolchain on x86_64.  I think I had a few things already marked
as "this always differs", but extending that without an understanding
of why things differed didn't seem a sensible idea.

 If it still works for you, that's great, but I can't say if it will
reliably work for everyone.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
