[LLVMdev] Several questions about LLVM

I'm new to LLVM but I see lots of potential on it for something that I'm 
working on.
I have a few questions about it:

1) I know there is a MSIL backend which is still at an experimental 
phase. When will it be ready? The same question for the MIPS backend.
2) Is there any plan or work being done to implement a Java backend?
3) I saw the passes feature. I think this can be very useful to 
implement a weaver for Aspect Oriented Programming. Once again, I ask if 
anybody is working on this or if there is already a AOP tool that can be 
used with llvm bitcode.
4) For the work that I'm doing, besides C and C++, it would be great to 
have a Fortran frontend. Would it be very hard to compile the llvm-gcc 
with suport for fortran?
