You've actually over-estimated our process. We never do a complete
merge from trunk to release, just either cherry-pick changes, or do a
sub-tree merge. There are often long neglected changes in trunk -
which is a major problem with the current system.

Having thought about it a bit, it might be the case that I exaggerated
the issue. It certainly matters to me, but I'm not sure about other
developers. A lot of the newer libraries don't put much effort into
supporting the more obscure compilers.
