The C++ headers, while a little obscured, are developer-readable;
people are fairly used to scanning for them under /usr/include when
trying to look something up.  Even having a symlink there would be a
little awkward - my instinct would be to either leave the headers under
/usr/include/g++-3, or to create a usr/include/gcc-include/arch/version

Do all of the libstdc++ headers really need this treatment?  Why not
just a specific subset of them?
