IMHO, in the future, GCC as a base an experimal compiler IS NOT good
because of enormeous complexities to design this optimizing compiler.

My reasons to select a good base are:

* the programming language to develop a complex optimizing compiler
MUST TO be high-level, more declarative than machine-imperative, OO,
GC'ed, polymorphic and easier to interact with A.I. agents (e.g. ala
ants colonies) to go storing better rules in the databases (to reuse
them later).

* the C programming language that is used to develop GCC is not
following above these principles.
