Note, that the LSB doesn't talk yet about C++ compatibility. There is
discussion about adding C++ to the LSB. See
AFAIK g++-3.3 still has ABI changes compared to g++-3.2, so there may
be another ABI change. In Autumn 2002 there has been a discussion of
adding a compatibility flag to retain g++-3.2 compatibility in
g++-3.3, but I didn't follow this discussion ...
