Yes, definitely

Thanks, preferably early stage 3 from my point of view: it is easy to 
introduce regressions while doing this as not-reached-by-the-testsuite is not 
exactly the same as not-reachable. We have proofs of that every day with new 
bug reports coming in. ;-)

I surely could use it, instead of adding a gcc_unreachable() somewhere and 
running the testsuite. 
If you plan to update it from time to time, maybe you could put it somewhere 
publicly available ?
