Only for uploads of C++ packages to the archive. The -devel-announce
post should be enough to keep developers aware of that, and the
autobuilders will already do the right thing (so there's no need to use
Build-Depends to prompt them). For random local builds it's generally
speaking *not* necessary to use the newer compiler, and they're the only
thing we stand a chance of influencing here.
