what kind of official announcement do you need? we try to reduce the
number of compilers that need to be shipped with a release. currently
it looks like that we do not have to ship the compilers based on
gcc-3.3, maybe still ship the libstdc++5 runtime library. it's too
early to say something about g++-3.4, the bug reports are submitted
as non RC reports. Besides C++ other languages to drop from 3.4 are
ObjC and maybe Ada.
