FWIW, FreeBSD (and OS X, and perhaps other BSD flavours) are still on
gcc 4.2.1 (there's work towards making clang the default compiler on
FreeBSD, but that's another story), so it'd be good to have at least gcc
4.2 supported -- is that too much of a burden? I could help test things
on it if it's needed.
