Ah, well any code that uses it is non-standard so I would strongly
discourage anyone from using it for a new project. The STL classes provide
pretty much the same functionality in a standard way.
Could we possible separate libg++ and libstdc++? I don't think there is
much reason to include libg++ in Base, but libstdc++ definately should be
in there. I do admit I don't have any idea how much C++ code in debian
makes use of the special G++ constructs so this might be a bad idea!
