This is an absolutely great idea. I would like to see gfortran displace g77 in
all distributions. As it stands, Debian Etch will not ship with gfortran
being the preferred fortran compiler. Getting the basic regression bugs from
g77 fixed so that basic packages can be built without issue is of great
importance so that g77 can be dropped for good.
