Asking just out of curiosity: how are you affected by the simple possibility
to install multiple versions off gcc? If you want just one version of gcc on
your system, isn't installing just one version of gcc an option for you?

BTW: On my Linux box, I have installed both gcc 3.3.5 and gcc 3.4. Obviously
at most one of them is doing some work at a given time.
I think GCC is a reliable tool. We don't need to have the old version to
co-exist for chaos. If you worry that GCC 4.0 doesn't work properly, why don't
you wait for a while for people's comments? With multiple versions of the same
development tool, you'll have infinite nightmares for your code.
People who deploy/maintain libraries need multiple compilers.
Not everyone is a end-user.
For the 2.95 => 3.0 switch it was also usual to have both.
