I would also consider totally dropping some of the toolsets.
Is gcc 3.2.x still needed?
I'd like to drop gcc 2.95.x after the 1.33 release. Debian (the last
major Linux distribution to use gcc 2.9x.y) will (hopefully) release
Sarge this year. I expect the demand for gcc 2.9x support to shrink
dramatically (in fact, most people I know are already switching to Sarge
or to a different distribution because they're fed up by the outdated
software offered by Woody). Please object loudly, if you think we'll
need gcc 2.95.3 based tests after 1.33 was released.
