I didn't create the hint, the gcc maintainer did.  I was just describing
how it should work for minmal user confusion.

I didn't think version specific dependencies would be needed here.  I'm
obviously not well versed in setup, but I thought that replacing the old
monolithic gcc package with an empty one and ajdusting that empty one's
dependencies to require the new equivalent packages would have done the
trick.  I guess I was wrong here?
