I agree completely, but the way that they've handled the devtoolset
just seems a bit odd. It's definitely a VERY nice to have an updated
toolchain available, but why is a separate product? It is available
for install with CentOS ( http://people.centos.org/tru/devtools-1.1/ )
but the issue is that there's no clear way to use the compilers in the
devtoolset with the EPEL and that's VERY unfortunate in my opinion.
