I see that "gcc44" is listed there (as well as "apple-gcc42" for Apple's
version which we're already "aquainted" with).

So I take it that we can direct MacOS users to this repository, and they
would be able to install a working GCC from it?

The alternative would be to figure out the situation with Apple-GCC 4.2.  I
can ellaborate on that if you'd like.
