I've been asking around, and it sounds like this will be a significant
inconvenience for some Igalia projects where upgrading the compiler is
a bit difficult, but everyone agrees the time specified in the
dependencies policy (the next Ubuntu LTS release) is fast approaching,
and that the policy is a good compromise. It looks like the next Ubuntu
release is due on April 26 , one month from today, so we should be
good to require GCC 6 at that time. Sound good?
