On one of my systems, I have a GCC4 based installation with GCC2 
compatibility libs. I can tell you that there are definitely issues: Any 
apps that use the Translation kit cannot load any images. VLC has no sound 
output. There may be more stuff. The system itself runs just as stable as 
my GCC2 based Haiku installations. In terms of speed, I have neither 
noticed nor could I measure any difference. I had one particular project, 
where I suspected a GCC4 build would improve speed, but it didn't. The most 
important benefit seems to be for developers when they need to work with 
code bases that need GCC4.

Best regards,
