It's probably not worth it at this stage to go through hoops for
per-host symbol versioning, since it's not being used, even though it's
something that is desirable in the long run.

Instead of defaulting to the new map, why don't you default to gnu-2.12,
and then have gnu-2.14 when you see it can be used? It's just a semi
colon. Really, it's a drag, but we have to put up with worse, and this
will allow us to revisit this closer to the release.
