I'm not planning on it, but I'm not planning against it either, so I wanted
to leave the possibility open; there might well turn out to be good reasons
for having a stable gcc43 and an experimental gcc45, for example. I think
some of the Linux distros do it that way(*).

That sounds handy.

Thanks a bunch Yaakov, you've already done a hell of a lot by creating
cygport in the first place. I'm pretty sure I don't need any other support
for the foreseeable future... except I might just end up asking you to put
that asterisk back! :)
(*) - Ah, yes. E.g. opensuse has all of gcc-33, gcc-41, gcc-43 and gcc-44
