That's not the point. The point is that all the alternative packages
like gcc49 etc are much more heavy by including things like the Java
backend. You can easily select a different implementation, but for
casual users, it is way too heavy. That ignores all the usual problem of
dealing with multiple GCC versions at the same time. We hit some of them
due to rpath ordering already.
