I'm not sure we should be too worried.  Already over 1/3 of the repo is 
built with it and only 1 package has been reported broken (and one other 
not in the repo).

Anyway, I will be doing a new gcc rebuild when the next 4.5 snapshot 
gets released (~24 hours away).  That has a fix for at least one of the 
issues we have encountered.
