Indeed.  It seems that if we can't find a contact for ICC, then 13.0.1
(the oldest version supported by godbolt) is a best effort, IMO.  If
we end up adding patches for minimal compiler versions, maybe v13.0.1
is a good minimal for ICC.  But I would really defer to someone who
has an install of ICC (not me).
