Yep, we will need to address those.

Exactly. There is no problem here. Fortran needs to be working as
a first class citizen. I personally use modern Fortran a lot. I've
setup this page:

http://fortran90.org/

with a relevant FAQ about binary compatibility:

http://fortran90.org/src/faq.html#are-fortran-compilers-abi-compatible

and based on how things work on Windows, I'll be happy to extend the
information there.
