Uh, the gcc3.2 ABI change is only for C++. Since the X API is C, I don't
see how this is a problem. Build qt2 and kde2 with 2.95, keeping the old
C++ ABI[1]. Build new stuff with 3.2. Both should work just fine with X.


[1] which requires a 2.95 version of the standard C++ library, but
that's getting a new soname anyway for 3.2, right? So no conflict there.

    world.       -- seen on the net
