I propose renaming Other Compilers to "List of Compilers" and including a very brief summary of every compiler. Other lists could be added on the page so we keep the present content as Summaries and add terser lists for language, target architecture, host architecture, and perhaps license. My goal is to make a quick-reference to save time and effort when choosing a compiler.

This would ease maintenance a little because we wouldn't be trying to exclude things in the compilers category. I see it presently includes some compilers which have their own page and are or should be in the category. Another compiler (LCC) which is in the category but not this page has a one-line page more suitable for this list.

Regarding "very brief", my own 6-sentence summary of "kencc" is perhaps a longer than desirable. I'll make a page for it at some point.
