Please also add them to gcc/MAINTAINERS (under Write After Approval?).

Ah, that means were going to cooperate, Bradley! :-)

Why not 4.x? (Though this shouldn't make much difference, I'm tempted

Is it possible to have PRs whose ID doesn't consist of numbers
exclusively? Like J143? We'll have to do something similiar for the
libstdc++ integration as well...
