Any actual statements from the FSF?

Just wondering — does anyone have pointers to direct statements from the FSF on this issue? It seems a bit odd to have LWN write two articles on gcc plugins centering around the supposed FSF opposition to them, but every description of the FSF position in both articles is hearsay.
Google doesn't turn up anything obvious. To quote LWN's previous article, Some participants stated that Richard Stallman has blocked any sort of GCC plugin mechanism for just this reason - though it should be noted that Mr. Stallman has not contributed directly to this discussion (emphasis added).
Can we get it straight from the horse's mouth, please?
