As long as the changes are minor and we're sure they won't cause new
breakage it's not an issue. Going from 3.3.2pre4 to 3.3.2 /should/ be
minor. If it bumps shlibs or similar, it's more of an issue, but still
probably not a major problem. If it changes a soversion, that does become
a problem.


FYI: Note that I've forced the current version of gcc-3.3 into testing
for tomorrow's dinstall; in spite of it being broken on arm, and unbuilt
on m68k. This will ease a bunch of problems, but is still causing major
hassles for Qt and KDE, so we still need a properly fixed gcc-3.3 ASAP.
