I don't see a problem with supporting gcc 2.95 - as long as there is somebody 
caring about it. Its the same with newer / non-gcc compilers - somebody 
capable has to be there that does the testing and the fixing. There's nothing 
further to discuss. If there is nobody left, then it will be broken at some 

As you know I'm usually keeping KDE compiling with bleeding edge gcc and I 
know how tiresome and boring this work is - given that the very same 
incompatibilities are introduced over and over again in the code. But its 
really not that much work, since its easy to spot the usual compiler oddities 
and fix them.
