[LLVMdev] dragon egg + llvm for fortran to c translation

I would like to know if it is feasible to use the dragon egg gcc plugin 
to automatically convert fortran code to c. Having found that it is 
possible to output llvm byte code back to c (at least something like 
this gave me this impression/hope: llc -march=c -o test.c) I am hoping 
to use dragon egg to generate the byte code from fortran 90 which than 
output to c.
Does this seem feasible at all? How much in terms of variable names 
etc. could be retained in this manner?

thanks for any suggestions or comments
