As said above, there is no need to support the new interfaces right the
second the changes hit the gcc cvs archive. If anything, developers are
even more reluctent to update to a new major gcc version than they are
updating glibc (there are still tons of programs which still don't
compile with gcc 4.0). So the chances are good that by the time that
gcc version is available a reasonably new glibc is in use as well. And
the packagers can ensure this by adding appropriate dependencies if
necessary.

I would actually disagree with that because people can build new compilers
without depending on it fully and only for the new code they compile, unlike
glibc. Also what about the *BSD's and other targets which don't
depend on glibc?
