[lug] another new gcc/g++ ABI?

I noticed (while looking for gcc 3.1 source rpm's) that gcc 3.2 is going 
to change the ABI again (so it seems like they should call it 4.0 
instead of 3.2, but heck, we can't count that fast can we?). I'm curious 
what people think of this, in particular, it mentions complying with 
"the V3 multi-vendor standard":

More of a curiosity than anything, is anyone familiar with that 
standard, and how it might actually benefit things in the future? Is 
there some ABI standard that might improve compatibility across o/s's, 
or in some other way, or is it just compliance to a standard in the 
usual sense?
