    The sane release process and the availability of bugfix updates is the main reason why llvm/clang is not going to catch up to gcc any time soon.

    My bad. I should probably not post when I can't fully concentrate. Reading back now, don't know why I assumed that. Might go crawl back into my hole now.

    I've actually tested this on a KDE desktop PC. I've built the whole system (over 1000 packages) with GCC 4.7 and LTO. I posted my finding here:

    (note to self: leave libreoffice out, that thing takes too long to build)
    LibreOffice isn't compiling with gcc-4.7 atm anyway

    There's still a number of packages that simply don't compile with gcc-4.7 until these are fixed it's unlikely it'll be hard unmasked
