Is there a pressing reason to LEAVE 2.95.3 ?

have you considered 2.95.4 (debian have some patches, I think)

and for the 'real evidence', read the gcc mailinglist. gcc 3 is up to 20% slower than 2.95.x in some cases, and not significantly faster in any others.

I think the 'significant case' here was mplayer, making some poor sods machine too slow for DVD playback, whilst 2.95.3 was just fast enough...
