Gcc 4.0 introduces some big optimizer changes. See
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.0/changes.html There is a
very high risk for optimizer problems (on all
I would expect that Unstable will change to gcc 3.4.x
for the new base compiler after Sarge release date.
The chance to introduce gcc 4.0 as the next base
compiler after release date is pretty low.
_Unfortunately_ the amd64(gcc-4.0) folks will be out
