I support the collective opinions of the debian-installer team and maintainer 
of our compiler packaging.  Further discussion would be required to convince
me that we should overrule developer(s) on this issue.

In general, it seems to me that there should be a "burden of proof" on the 
bug submitter in cases like this that are fundamentally a request for a new 
feature addition.  Such proof might include implementing the requested change
by creating a suitably patched version of the package in question, and then 
showing us the "cool stuff" their proposed change enables through a suitable 
demo program.
