Somehow, I see it logical to have someone having an old distro (let's
say RH 7.0) and wanting to build a recent userland app, like FFmpeg
from CVS... On the contrary, having an old distro and upgrading to
latest 2.6 seems quite a more invasive task as it requires to upgrade
the a fair deal of core apps which gravitates around the kernel.
So IMHO it only sound logical that the kernel dev folks drop old
compilers, and userland dev folks keeping compatibility with old
compilers which haven't gone dodo yet.

Reinventing the wheel certainly is annoying, but as long as all other
wheels are square...
