I have not --- but the latest cvs gcc is NOT a stable compiler.  There
are many problems with it -- it is not ready for prime time yet.

Specifically, what sort of problems are you having with our standard
compiler?  If there's a codegen bug in our standard compiler, chances
are we can fix it.

BTW, we're going to have gcc-2.95.2 in post-1.5, and possibly 1.5.1, if
we can get it working on all platforms by then.
