Broken bootstraps are not an argument for not merging now. We still
can't do interesting bootstraps (with SSA-any enabled) on the tree-ssa
branch now anyway.

Yet another branch, for what? There's no reason to do any work on
the tree-ssa branch during this fixing period, it would only make
the merge more complicated.

It has already been decided to abandon SIMPLE. Better do it soon
then, so development can go on with the new IL.

BTW does Jason's IL have a name?

I'm in favor of option #1. I just hope the new IL itself will not change
all the time after the merge.
