I disagree - there is a real reason to rush.  Once gcc-4 hits town next
week people will start building LFS with it, you know they will, even if
you tell them not to.  There is a real opportunity to have LFS ready for
this.  Or at least to have an unstable branch that supports it.

I had no difficulty building a reasonably stable gcc-4/glibc-2.3.5
system that carried BLFS with just a few patches all the way up to a
gnome build (with a few oddities in gnome, I admit, but that's usual
with my gnome builds) plus the Mozilla family too. Knowing this, and the
fact that Greg's build works, people will try it.  I'd prefer to have
the educational material ready, Greg's group are definitely for the
clever bunch but he would really like to see some of his ideas taken up
here - educational material is not his forte (I think he would be the
first to admit that).

But it's your call, Matt.  It don't bother me much either way.
