The arguments about Red Hat's "2.96" should be put behind us.  Yes, the
SC asked Red Hat to use "2.96-RH" to help clarify that it wasn't a GNU
release, so bug reports would go to the right place.  But there have
been many releases, both of GCC and of Red Hat, since then, and now
Red Hat uses a 3.2-based compiler.  Surely there's something more current
that we can argue about.
