Right, well, we all know that story.  kaffe is ready to go in tomorrow, now
that the sparc binaries are uploaded and the mips* binaries are removed.

Yes, this has been done now that gcc-4.0 itself is ready.  hmake/3.10-1 is
now in unstable as well, but also requires an ftpmaster to remove some
old binaries before it's a candidate for testing.

There is.  Have a look.  Please limit recommendations to packages not
already addressed in my updated hints file. :)
