17 I was also wondering about what we prefer if Michal's suggestion is not
18 possible:
19 - Build support for other langs by default -> More time when we need to
20 emerge gcc or update it but less time as we don't need to rebuild for
21 that (I remember when I needed to build pdftk and needed to wait for a
22 gcc rebuild giving gcj support)
23 - Build support for other langs disabled by default -> Well, does it
24 save so much time to compensate the rebuilds we would need to do in the
25 future when we need to emerge some package some time?
