Everybody knows that the correct term is Glunix; Lignux is just one of 
Glunix's lugnuts. In re RMS's coding and cognitive style, it's possible 
that you just don't see the big picture. * Anyway, I think there are a 
few million people around the world who are aware of his contribution to 
freedom of computation. I've heard of Japan, but not Professor Turnbull 
nor even Tsukuba. Amoris umbra invidia.

Btw, I find 'incompossible' and 'uncompilable' but not your neologism.

* If his coding is no longer up to snuff maye it's because he's devoting 
his attention to even more important matters.
