(*sigh*)

I really wonder how to get the FSF/GNU toolchain software development
efforts to follow the FreeBSD and OpenBSD development method of actually
merging fixes in the HEAD development branch back to the release branch
-- GASP!  rather than letting the release branch stagnate to the point of
totally uselessness.  [the GCC 2.95 branch is a fine example of this, and
the binutils_2.10_release branch only has 40KB of diff from release to
this moment (and this *includes* the diff header CVS puts for each diff].
