No PPA needed. There's gcc-snapshot package in universe. That include libstdc++ and everything else, but all installed under /usr/lib/gcc-snapshot.

Of course, it's only 4.7 until 4.8 development starts in a few months time, at which point I'd expect there to be a gcc-4.7 package, although I don't know for sure.
