I wonder how well tested it is on all architectures?  I'd worry about
things like exception handling and threading being fully tested on all

There still seem to be a lot of kernel people who don't trust 3.2; now
whether that is a kernel issue or a gcc issue is very difficult to tell
- my personal guess is that it is a bit of both.  Definitly 2.95.x is
	still the recommended kernel compiler for most architectures - a pity
given the improvements 3.2.x has made in many places.
