Ah .. it seems cheeky to ask, but I'd really like to see packages
compiled against vanilla Woody too.  
(new libc ... scary stuff .. mumble ..)

Is it possible ?

Is the new libc required because of the switch to gcc 3.2 ?
(Message-ID: <20020723121722.GB15285@cheney.cx>)
If so, can we use gcc 2.95 instead (as well) ?

With the reported speedups and all in KDE3, surely the credibility of
Debian's premier just-released stable version would benefit from KDE
3.0.3 being in the optional feature set.

Quite apart from the speedups and doodads, there's that
oh-so-important Konqui-SSL fix.  If a Woody KDE 3.0.3 isn't possible,
would it be possible for someone to produce a binary deb of the
patched 2.2.2 version of kdelibs-kssl ?

(Actually, shouldn't a 2.2.2 fixed kdelibs-kssl appear as a Debian
security fix ?)

Okay okay - Chris & Daniel gotta have a life - I'll shut up :)
