This may be an obvious question, but how do non-x86 architectures play into
this?  If there issues with these architectures and GCC 4.0, will Fedora Core 4
revert to GCC 3?

I ask because I saw rumblings of some ppc32/gcc4 problems today.  It may be a
false alarm, but the question still stands.  Feel free to add it to the FAQ :).
