I'm fully in favour of changing the default once we've had a little running
in period, along with the change to gcc4 as the system default compiler. But
I'd really like to have the libstdc/weak problem fixed before making that
switch, so that our default mode of operation isn't non-conformant.

Can you take this one upstream for us? LT really ought to know about these
two options, they're not even Cygwin-specific at all.
