I was thinking as actual code, so we can make modifications where we
need to / want to as well.  But your idea is much less contentious :-)

CentOS 7.  Some of those systems cannot run CentOS 8.  And CentOS 8 will
reach EoL in less than two months, and CentOS Stream is not an option at
all (and even if it were, it cannot work on many of the machines).

Everything else on CentOS 7 is supported by GCC (it is the oldest
supported for pretty much everything, but still).  It would be bad for
DejaGnu to be the limiting factor :-/
