 Does anyone have thoughts on a Debian-wide migration towards GCC 3.2?
 (Or, for that matter, towards *anything* in the 3.x line).  g++ 3.2 is
 a superb compiler, much more standards conformant, less bugs and all
 arround something you'd like to have.  The problem is that all our C++
 libraries are compiled using 2.95.x (on i386 at least) and that
 precludes using g++ 3.2 for development.  To make things more
 interesting, some people are already releasing code which makes 2.95.4

 Uhm... I'm extremely confused now... I wanted to count the number of
 affected packages, but then I noticed:

$ dpkg -s libgtkmm1.3-11 | grep ^Depends
Depends: libatk1.0-0 (>= 1.0.2), libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.0.4), libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.0.5), libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.0.3), libsigc++-1.1-4

 My guess is that that's a C++ library being linked with gcc instead of

 Ignoring that for the moment, I have:

$ grep-available -s Package -F Depends libstdc++ | wc -l

 So, we are talking about 1000 packages, give or take a hundred.
