hm. gerard said he was going to use 3.1 on the strength of his current
CVS gcc in one post. that does sound to me rather like any testing would
be irrelevant and it will be used anyhow.

How do you interpret that?

Thats what Im trying to find out - I want to know exactly how he is
planning on doing this upgrade as he currently sounds like he has 'pre
appproved' gcc 3.1

It is for ME to say I have AS (in public) and no-one else. Im sorry, but
I dont want people making excuses for me and especially not telling
people that arguing with me is futile because of AS, because it is NOT.
I /will/ listen, but I also ask tough questions, which people dont like

The above para. is a funny way of showing respect. Spouting
misinformation about me.

Ok, fine - if its going into the CVS book //only// for a LONG time,
