My limited tests on sparc, i386 and powerpc show no incompatibilites. I do
agree with a staging area, and that was my next suggestion. Problem is,
how do we stage for this to keep all C++ applications from breaking? Will
we need a libstdc++2.10-glibc2.1 like with the 2.0->2.1 upgrade had, and
if so, what will I need to do to enable this?

I've Cc'd alpha list to ask about the package name currently involved
(libc6.1) will that need to change to 6.2? What about libc0.2 for hurd?
