I think we would entertain the idea of dropping AVV and use the {} 
vector syntax everywhere.

That require documenting that we support just gcc-4 on ppc (and that 
would make some workarounds go away as well)

Given that the 3.3 series has sever bugs and I'm not aware of people 
using gcc-3 on ppc anymore, I'd be moderately fine with it.
