I've seen the same code do:

do not compile under 2.95.2
do not compile under 2.95.3
compile under gcc 2.95.4
do not compile under gcc 3.1
do compile under gcc 3.2
do not compile under gcc 3.3

So, personally, I am sceptical about just forcing code to compile with
gcc version X.
No ill feeligns towards the GCC guys, they have different goals than
what I have in my mind when it comes to compilers.

I'll check it towards the current compiler in the base.

One of my personal goals is to make the codebase compilable with a bunch
of compilers.
