I am not aware of one. I'd be a little afraid of something like that,
particularly over a UART connection- considering the chance of sending
special characters that could break your character stream.

As far as I am aware, yes, but it is also part of a larger effort- to just
have 3 Microchip compilers- an 8 bit (XC8) a 16 bit (XC16) and 32 bit
(XC32). The 8 bit compilers are mostly derived from hi-tech, the 16 and 32
bit mostly from gcc. I think the biggest change in appearance is that
there is just one (*1*) 8 bit compiler (from Microchip)- no
differentiation (at least to the user) between PIC10, PIC12, PIC16, and
