To agree with Joseph, less politely:

I am pretty seriously annoyed that it is considered acceptable to
commit patches to the GNU Compiler that break the GNU C Library, and
then push blame around.  I otherwise agree with Mike Stump's recent
posting on getting the world fixed, but I don't think it's valid to
disclaim responsibility for the rest of the GNU project.  Much of the
point of the GNU project is that it cooperates with itself.

For full disclosure, I will note that this didn't break Geoff's daily
builds, but did break mine; but since I admit I don't have the time to
fix it, I'm just going to stop using HEAD until something slightly more
like a consensus emerges.
