matter at hand is whether it is necessary or desirable to require that
version 3.2 be used for the build by listing it as a build-dependency.
Otherwise, either can fulfill the build essential requirement for a C++

They will not necessarily do so immediately, however.  I believe this is a
manual process, to avoid random breakage.
