Perhaps, but not by me. I agree with the person who stated that /opt
should be as untouchable as /usr/local. It's a very good sysadmin
tool...but debian packages should leave it alone.

Well, largely because I'm a lazy bum. Using update-alternatives means
that I have to upload a new gcc-126.96.36.199 package to unstable which can
coexist with egcs. It just seems...well, _wrong_ somehow to hack gcc in
that manner. But if everyone else disagrees with me, I'll do it.
