Interesting, thanks for the information. Is that already available 
somewhere, or are there any plans to release it along with LLVM 3.0?

I don't use Windows much myself, but some Pure users and many of my 
students do. Pure relies on LLVM-capable compilers for its C/C++/Fortran 
inlining capabilities, so being able to just point Windows users to a 
binary llvm-gcc package to make that work is very convenient. Of course 
we can stick to the latest llvm-gcc 4.2 on Windows for a while, but if 
there's a dragonegg version that works there then I'd certainly like to 
give that a whirl some time.
