Yes, I think that's true but I also think there is some gcc41 rebuild
issues with it too (well there seems to be when I just try to rebuild
the srpm. I think the binaries produced by gcc 4 and 4.1 are
compatible so most things won't need to be rebuilt, but then its
probably good for them to be rebuilt too.
