With the maintainers and release team accepting, it looks like we have
a consensus.

Ideally I'd like to see the refblas3->lapack3->atlas3 set uploaded to
experimental first. But the experimental buildd's do not pull build
dependencies for experimental.. So as a lighter version,

first stage:

1) announce to d-d + bcc maintainers.

BCC, since it reply-all seems popular.

2) get refblas3 uploaded to experimental

Since it has a anal testuite, it should expose most critical porting

3) file important "please change to gfortran" bugs on the "trivial" packages.

Second stage:

If there is any serious problems shown by first stage, first get them
fixed. Else proceed directly:

Start uploading all packages build-depending on g77/libg2c. Raise RC
bugs as at this point gfortran transition is a release goal.

Sounds good?

"rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups
