it's this time of the year where you go to your vacation, and look at a new
shiny new GCC version in the archive when you come back.  Well, not exactly ...

I'm planning to change the default on Aug 03/04, and then working to get things
migrated and buildable again, including two transitions for GCC runtime
libraries.  Fixing things pro-actively is appreciated.  If there are questions,
please use the #ubuntu-devel irc channel.  Resources for the GCC 7 update are:
