Andreas Jochens in particular did a lot of hard work in fixing most of
the GCC 4.0 failures and regressions over the last year while porting
for amd64.  The fact that many maintainers have not yet applied, or at
least carefully reviewed and applied amended patches, is a pity.

As the bug lists at http://bts.turmzimmer.net show, most of the RC
bugs currently have patches.  Grab yours today!
