Well, we're using egcs here pretty successfully with templates, STL,
and threads.  I've heard that the absolute latest snapshot may have a
few problems, but 971023 works much better for us than gcc-2.7.X did.

Yes, it has.  I think most of us here would hesitate to give you any
firm date.  If past practice is any guide, we'd slip it.

In my opinion, if you're willing to be even a little adventurous,
unstable's quite usable now.
