    Hopefully now 4.7 will get un-hardmasked in gentoo soon, I have a trinity notebook arriving in about a week and want 4.7's awesome bulldozer optimizations.

    Could always unmask it - if you don't need anything listed in the 4.7 tracker. I'm going to take that dive myself in a few days, mostly because I want the extra C++11 support.

    I was waiting for the .1 release too, for I hear LTO is finally stable and usable for most things.

    Seems to be working so far, but generates far bigger code with -Os and only gets back to equivalent-sized binaries compared to 4.2 with -flto.

    There's still a number of packages that simply don't compile with gcc-4.7 until these are fixed it's unlikely it'll be hard unmasked
