Just to be clear... when I say "you can break it for up to two months"
I don't mean that breaking for 1.9 months is recommended practice or
that if many people regularly did so the situation would be tolerated.

I'm just trying to say that GCC mainline is an integration branch:
everyone is (probabilistically) a little behind it during non-freeze
(or "slush", as of today :-) periods.  Arch core hackers: the GCC list
is a very interesting indirect source of real requirements (as opposed
to just hacking from an ivory tower).  That's all.
