 So, I had been looking a bit at switching to Ubuntu 12.04 (#15551) as the
 new Debian stable is supposed to come out shortly.

 What the Bitcoin people are doing is basically what I did for #10125
 (getting Debian as a host OS going) + they use 64 bit Ubuntu Precise:
 /gitian-linux.yml. Here is what they did/do with respect to older glibc

 Sounds not like anything we could easily do. Switching to Debian guest VMs
 does not sound trivial either. I wonder how many user are really affected
 if we switched to Ubuntu Precise after Debian Jessy gets out. I'd inclined
 to argue Debian old-stable users (i.e. people using Wheezy then) should
 upgrade to stable as I can't imagine we want to start switching to old
 stable for building our Linux packages (not talking about the ones for OS
 X and Windows). Hmm...
