One thing that would nice is gcc 2.95, which is 5 days past its release
date*. And Brandon seems to think that he can fit X 4.0 in this cycles,
which would be nice.

* Which will immediately add release-critical bugs to kernel packages to
the effect of "add -fno-strict-aliasing or bad things will happen.", which
will be pain, but not sufficent to stop it from going in to Potato.
