Actually, I think this would be a good idea.  Get people used to the
new way of building cross-compilers to hosted systems, sooner rather
than later - it's much simpler.  I was a bit disappointed by the
narrow distance we missed 3.3 by the first time.

I haven't looked at HJ's actual patch.  I have a complete sysroot
backport in my local 3.3 tree, though, so I can compare against that if
necessary.
