IMO, to no degree.
The only reason some critical bug fixes got applied was because I pushed
and pushed. The GCC 2.95 branch is totally abandoned. 2.95.1 and 2.95.2
came quickly after 2.95.0. But we have not seen a release of FSF/GNU GCC
in a year, and 3.0 is another ?6-9mo? off.
Jeff Law tries to do a little bit of work on that branch, but the other
GCC committers need to help him out to make any real branch maintenance
take place. C++ in 2.95.2 is so bad that I know many C++ that have had
