But I think C++ developers should be happy if C++ compiler is becoming
more standards compliant.  Further, if the binary incompatible code
generated by the newer gcc versions is faster then one can
optimistically hope that overtime much C++ code will get converted to
reflect the C++ ISO standard and recompiled to deliver faster
high-performance software.  I guess this ABI stuff is a temporary
make-shift for those apps that have been compiled with the newer gcc
versions and have to maintain compatibility with software components
compiled with the earlier gcc versions.

My earlier question:  Does anyone know about the company that embarked
on an effort to completely revamp the gcc so that subsequently
re-compiled Linux & related software runs _much_ faster?  I did
bookmark the page but somehow I have lost it & can't find it now.  I
would be thankful if you guys could give me related links.

Sorry for another off-topic post.

Thanks and regards,
