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 unstable. 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.
