Yes, it does. GCC4 "broke" a few c++ programs because it was rather more

That's the first time I've had that said to me. Mind you, TTBOMK, it's
also the first time someone's made any comments on my packaging :)

If someone was really wondering just what I'd changed, they could easily
extract the source rpm and then do a diff against the virgin sources.
However, they don't need to do that. All they need to do now is download
the source rpm, extract it and they can look at the diff.
