Thanks for the input.
I definitely think that language/compiler choice should take maintainability and the prospect of bitrot into consideration.

Being stuck with a codebase in assembly for someone else to pickup in 5 years time is essentially lost code in practice.

The same with using compilers that are not supported anymore.

Staying alive is a more vital prospect then a bit of speed :-)
