For the upcoming C++ ABI change, one library in xfree86 (xlibmesa-glu)
has to be built for the new C++ ABI as well. At some point xfree86
will be replaced by xorg as well. Based on some experience with
spoons it doesn't look helpful to start both changes at the same
time. xlibmesa-glu is needed by a large percentage of C++ packages
(at least all of qt and kde), so I would like to see an xlibmesa-glu
built for the new ABI early during the C++ ABI change (i.e. build
xfree86 a last time explicitely with gcc-3.3, and xlibmesa-glu with
g++-3.4 or g++-4.0). This is one proposal, obviously wanting to
smooth the C++ ABI change. I'm happy about any other proposal which
eases the change for both.
The C++ ABI transition occurred a while ago, no need to bother anymore
trying to make it smooth :) Closing.
