There is a reason why "g++-3" was picked at the time.
It's already been suggested that the name should be versioned, e.g.,
g++-v3.0, g++-v3.1, etc. Nobody had time to make the corresponding changes
in the compiler (cpplib) before the release and post a patch for comment.
I'd like to see this done, but I don't have time to make the corresponding
change to cpplib even now, after the release. Care to give it a try?
