I wrote this for the v3 list, but then thought that the reasoning could be
applicable to the wider audience of 'gcc@'.
The include/bits headers have a number of deprecated functions, with the
documentation reading, "this was deprecated in 3.2 and will be removed
Given the version renumbering, we ought to change the second number to 3.4.
I'll do this in the v3 headers and docs unless there's a good reason not to.
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
