When to upload a package which fixes FTBFS with GCC 4.3 ?

Dear Martin,

	thanks a lot for your work ! I am very impressed by your
tenacity (I got a similar bug for a package starting with the A letter
one month ago).

	I have a question : I read in the link you provided that
binary program will be smaller if compiled with gcc 4.3. Does it mean
that I should wait for gcc 4.3 to become the default compiler before
uploading a new version which fixes the bug, in order to take
advantage of a rebuild, or will there be a mass rebuilding anyway ?

(CCing to -devel in the hope that the question is not too naive and
has a general interest.)

Have a nice day,
