One of the aims of athlon-optimization is to test g++-3.0,
and checking if binaries will compile with g++-3.0 in an easy way.

Disabling g++-3.0 is defeating the whole point of

Hmm.. that would be interesting.

I could divert dpkg-shlibdeps and make it output
platform-athlon in addition to other things.

It's a gross hack, not very clean.
