This was kind of a shortcut to not insert a full disclaimer ;-)
Basically I meant two things:
* this toolchain is a newer one than the 10.04 one (while the
cross-toolchain from 10.10 and 11.04 are built from the corresponding
* there was a time where you would get an updated host toolchain when
enabling the repository which had the cross-toolchain (e.g. you might
get a newer libc6 than the one from 10.04 if you enable the PPA); I
think this is solved now, but this is a risk you might want to be
aware of -- it would also be a bug though
