[LLVMdev] dragonegg FSF gcc merge?

   Is there a timeline for when dragonegg might be
merged into gcc (4.6 perhaps)? I ask because FSF gcc
has allowed code in as technology previews before.
For instance, graphite really wasn't that usable in
gcc 4.4 and produced wrong code in the Polyhedron
2005 benchmarks until gcc 4.5. So as long as it can bootstrap
gcc 4.6 and works in general, dragonegg should qualify
for inclusion as an experimental plugin.
