Nothing in woody should be compiled by 3.2.
Everything should be compiled by 2.95

People who use mixed woody/{sarge,sid} systems without taking appropriate

Woody is g++ 2.95 based. So everything labeled "for woody" should be
compiled with 2.95 ABI. If someone wants to import something with 3.2 ABI
into his woody system, he must do that extremely careful and check all ABI
compatability issues manually.

Maybe package in the backport should be renamed, to make it harder for 
people to break their systems.
