I'm on 151a9 and have some locally compiled packages (mostly GNOME bits
that aren't part of the OS or that are old in the OS version) that were
compiled with Studio C++ and linked against the OS versions of a few
of those.

It is not a problem for me to rebuild, though, so don't let me stop you
from proceeding with your plans.

I do think it might be nice to provide the existing Studio-compiled
C++ libraries in some kind of a "compat" package, but I also understand
that there's a limited amount of time available and there are higher
priority tasks than keeping those libraries around for backward

On a tangentially related note, does anyone know of any tests that
compare the performance of generated code between Studio and gcc/g++?
I haven't seen one in years, so I would be interested to know how much
gcc has closed the performance gap with Studio?
