GCC and GMP 5.0.1

I'm curious if any distributions have begun shipping with GMP 5?
Debian Linux's GMP (which I maintain) is presently 4.3.2 and we're
having a bit of a debate whether to upgrade to GMP 5.

GCC uses GMP internally and there is a concern that the upgrade could
cause a regression in GCC.  Debian builds on more than a dozen
architectures and there are a couple of GCC versions current amongst
the architectures.

Any experience good or bad with building GCC using GMP 5 would
be appreciated.
