LFS 4 will use gcc3.x?

that seems like a Really Bad Idea (tm) if what I am reading on the GCC mailinglists is true.

3.0.x has many regressions from 2.95.3
3.1.x has even more

To me the GCC project looks to be in a state of extreme flux and not production grade at all.

Im sure it'll be fine eventually, but right now I think gcc 3.x is a mistake.

3.5 might be useable at the current rate of development.
