Because of the gcc 4 transition and C++ transition, which screwed us all
over since we needed to wait for the full dep-chain to be transitioned, and
a lot of libs took their sweet time to do it (probably because of the gcc 4
transition and FTBFS problems).

Yes, there were. I am a rdepend of libjack, and I was notified by direct
email with a LOT of time to spare, and later by a bug (because FTBFS with
gcc 4 delayed a new timidity a lot).
