gcc-snapshot for testing

I needed to test the building of one of my packages with gcc4.3.
However it turns out that gcc-snapshot from unstable contains the critical
bug, which makes impossible using it. At the same time the previous
version of the gcc-snapshot deb-package has been already deleted from

As a result I spent two days on building of the previous version of
gcc-snapshot (I've got rather slow hardware) in order to make a patch
for FTBFS-bug instead of 15 minutes. :)

May be it would be better to enable the passing of gcc-snapshot into
testing but not to included it in stable releases?
It will allow to have a working instrument in such situations.
