> Hello All,

I'd like to voice my support for this; I think that having Cilk Plus support in Clang will be very useful. I look forward to seeing the interesting patches ;)

Can you comment on what, if any, optimizations will be important for supporting Cilk Plus; either in the frontend or in the backend (or both).
