I don't care if a stopgap LSB based on 3.3.5 is adopted with the
understanding that a replacement (based on v6) is in the works. If this
is done, it would be only fair for the LSB document to warn about the
problems and to limit the life of the specification somehow. As for the
GCC team, I'd like the focus to be on making sure that the mistakes of the
past are not repeated.
