I actually have a replacement for CEE on my short term todo list.  In  
addition to not being hopelessly broken, it splits the dataflow fact  
analysis out from the transformation pass, so it will probably be more  
useful to you than CEE is.

My short-term spare-time priority list is:

1) finish the tutorial
2) finish legalizedagtypes.
3) finish the cee replacement.
