Why is a separate branch needed?  We can have a private repository of a few 
critical packages compiled with Propolice etc, if that works then the option 
should be put in the default gcc packages and the important packages should 
be built with it.

Either it's good enough to go into main reasonably quickly, or it's not good 
enough to be used at all.  I don't think there's any middle ground.
