Hi Yavor,

and thanks for checking with us.

What happens if the gcc-defaults switch is finally reverted? End of may
is approaching and that's the deadline the maintainer set to settle on a
possible revert (which various release team members have been asking for
since day 0).

I wouldn't bother too much gathering all involved packages, I'll just
set up a tracker, which should determine those and the dependencies
between them.

Uploading to experimental is a good idea, real tests + clearing NEW in
advance is always a good idea.
