See http://gcc.gnu.org/libstdc++/:

    What... is your name?

    The GNU Standard C++ Library v3, or libstdc++-v3. Older snapshots of
    this library were given the name libstdc++-2.9x up until the release
    of GCC 3. This is a complete rewrite from the previous libstdc++-v2.

Any idea how to make this clearer in the package description?
