This wasn't exactly the point I was making... I was aware of the PICs
built for a C compiler. What I meant to point out was the much smaller,
cheaper PICs with the same capabilities that use assembly - smaller and
cheaper because they don't have to support C stacks, etc. The code
looks the same in assembly as in C.
