> I don't know of anyone working on it, but I'd really like to eliminate void.  It doesn't seem like a useful feature of the type system.  Functions can be changed to return {} for example.

Not having a void type also means that people writing front-ends for C-like
languages won't try to convert "void*" into a pointer to the LLVM void type
and be confused when it doesn't work :)
