Don't be silly, of course it is supported. Clearly I am supporting it :)
You might not be interested in it, but it is something distros use and
autobuilders test. And --enable-zero isn't the same thing. That builds
zero as main runtime. People use the zero addition (or other additional
runtimes) to have additional runtimes instead of supplanting the default
one to have easy choice of runtime and make testing/comparing runtimes
