FWIW, I don't think that this makes sense from a community standpoint.

If you're serious about building a fortran frontend (which would be really really cool).  I think we should start it as another LLVM subproject.  It can certainly build off and use the Clang "liblex" to get the preprocessor etc, and taking changes to support Fortran into the clang tree would be perfectly fine.
