as this was sent in conjunction with gcc 4.1, I wonder whether gcc 4.1
is more strict in this matter, too.

i.e. if a package is currently in the archive, suffers from this
issues and the binary packages *currently* in the archive have been
built with gcc-4.0, should I

a) refrain from making a upload before the
issue is fixed as the packages will break horribly with gcc-4.1,

b) simply continue, as the package won't be broken more with gcc-4.1
than it was with gcc-4.0?
