I'd rather suggest that we start rebuilding packages in the main archive using
GCC-4.7 once 4.7.1 is release (around June).  This can be done incrementally
starting with packages in main, packages in packages sets, and other packages in

In parallel, I'd like to use the resources instead for test rebuilds using
llvm/clang, or Python3.3 when it's ready.

No objections.
