Get a grip. This needed to happen, it is best that it did happen early in potato's life. Perl is going to be hard too.
Fair warning WAS given. If you don't think so you need to read -devel a bit more, and maybe IRC a bit. The biggest
casualties seem to be C++ apps. Big deal, we now have a good ammount of time to fix these. And as for you people whining
'cause it glibc-2.1 broke your server, YOU SHOULDN'T BE RUNNING UNSTABLE IF YOU CAN'T HANDLE A BREAKAGE. Joel is doing
a great job and should not be attacked for his work. Let's see YOU do it!
