Before moving something out to a plugin (if we think that is technically 
appropriate for the particular code in question) we should have a way to 
build code, set up to be built as a plugin, into the compiler so that the 
-fplugin options find the built-in code, in a way that does not depend on 
plugins otherwise being supported on the host system; maybe somewhere in 
the source tree to put sources for plugins that get built into the 
compiler, or a configure option to point to such sources.
