I don't follow. There are certainly multiple ABI issues, and what I am
saying is that we have to be careful, unless we can prove that there are
not and will not be issues. The C++ ABI is not guaranteed stable.
There is also the NetBSD libstdc++ change. And there are other compilers.

Right, so therefore we must build *everything* with the same compiler.
I thought you were arguing that this was unnecessary.
