What about the debians, which always seem to be years behind? Don't forget 
that you're not just affecting the developers, but also packagers and users 
(sorry, KDE decided that debian sucks donkey nads because of its choice of 
gcc, so use TWM). That said, if the bug seemed to affect FBSD (and we sure 
haven't noticed, and the test apps don't show it) then I'd be more vocal 
about maintaining compiler compatibility.

Don't worry, 't ain't no shame to be stupid - ol' mouse.
