I understand your frustration, but this is something that happens to all 
of us who work on GCC.  It's annoying, but it's not necessarily 
avoidable.  People don't -- and probably can't -- realize the impact of 
patches like this until they are checked in and things stop working.

I'd still like to hear from other people about what they think the right 
path forward is.
