It's actually the same beast, it just underwent some changes in its
development model. The result's an amazingly improved compiler for all, I
think. (The C++ front-end, in particular, is in stellar shape. Another
fellow, Ben Kosnik, is helping to lead an effort to do a full implementation
of the C++ library as well, to allow GNU C++ to be both feature complete and
offer amazing code quality. Who, me, biased? Naw...)
B, who's worked on g++ at Cygnus for the last seven years :-)
