Is there a Fedora feature page for gcc 4.5?  I briefly searched, but
didn't find one.

I'm not sure that building things twice is a waste: if there are bugs,
having intermediate builds may help us determine whether the problem
relates to the Python or the GCC revision bump.  It may be simpler to do
a full rebuild of anything with:
  Requires: python(abi) = 2.6
as soon as python 2.7 hits rawhide.

Is there a good (automated) way of doing this?
