well, as i explained it the other day, my version has 'everything but the
kitchen sink' because i use it for development which isn't necessarily what
other projects need or want for themselves (e.g., consider the consequences
of Arnd's recent call to reduce the number of supported gcc versions, if that
goes anywhere above 4.5, gcc-common.h in linux can be further trimmed from my
version). at the end of the day this is a policy call and i'm not the one to
make it for linux ;).
