No. GCC 2.95 is EGCS 1.2, it's just that it's now the official GNU GCC
compiler. It's completely up to date on the EGCS side, but it's still
missing some of the latest work on the old official GCC in CVS.

Theoritacally, no, it's not. In practice (if I understand correctly), it's
usually compatable as long as STL stuff isn't used.
