..well, that's why we call it "experimental" ;o), to find out
_how_ it breaks, the idea was find bugs with gcc-4.5.* and
gcc-4.4.*, so I should get to blame you when the darn thing
even doesn't install. ;o)

..a fix would have the experimental stuff depend on
"gcc-4.3 || gcc-4.4 || gcc-4.5" etc as they appear.

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.
