You haven't explained what advantages CIL's IR has over GIMPLE.
I can't tell, but you may be under the impression GIMPLE is something
in the future. It is not.
Our IR is already GIMPLE, and a three address code simplified form of
C. We are simply talking about changing the underlying datastructures
that store it.
Hint: CIL's IR is almost exactly GIMPLE with alpha renaming over multiple units.
