RE: When will GCC 3 ship with Cygwin?

Just a suggestion:
Perhaps it might be wise to ship both the gcc versions (as separate
packages in setup, not just different versions of the gcc package),
default to the 2.95.3, thereby allowing users who wish to use the
current 3 branch to do so, while not breaking anything for the other
