As was noted, I do -- and yes, because building C++ code with GCC 3.4 is 
roughly 2.2x slower than GCC 2.95.  Since the main thing I use my CPU for is 
compiling stuff, upgrading my compiler would be basically seem like a pretty 
major hardware downgrade.

I also still use it because it means that yet another person is watching the 
build, though I basically never test the branches, just HEAD.
