Random thought:

If the GCC community is actually interested in this, it would probably make sense for the gcc tree to have a version of dragonegg that worked with the last released version of llvm, not for it to try to chase tot.  The LLVM tree would have a version of dragonegg that chased llvm ToT but worked with hte last released version of gcc.

Of course, this would depend on someone being willing to do the work :)
