I know, the compiling of the kernel doesn't depend on gcc-3.0 . :)

What I mean is, that woody became quite old, when it will be released and
_this_ might be a big disapointment.

Many Linux- Users, I asked, why they do not use debian, said, one the one
hand, debian is to difficult (ok, might be for someone), and on the other
hand, the software is too old.

One reason is, debian-stable _is_ stable, of course, but I think, it is good
to work on migration gcc-3.0 in woody.

And again, to create a list of apps, which will binary-incompatible with
libstdc++3 and then make a porting party or two parties will help to put
gcc-3.0 in woody.
