GCC 4.8 - building everything?

The last few days I've spent a few hundred CPU-hours building things with gcc 4.8. So far, alphabetically up to app-office/, it's been really boring.
The amount of failing packages is definitely lower than with 4.6 or 4.7. And most of the current troubles are unrelated - for example the whole info page generation madness.
At the current rate of filing and fixing bugs we should be able to unleash this new version on the masses really soon - maybe in about a month? (Or am I just too optimistic?)
