Maybe not, but it is a matter of adding more hooks, which seems easy enough.
In any case, the advice is the same: Join us and together we'll
conquer the galaxy, ah no, that's not it. It is: join GCC development
and propose changes that enable what you want to do.
Nonetheless, if I wanted to try this idea, I would start with the
hooks that are there already, thus I wouldn't even need to modify GCC.
Then, I would test whether the result is fast enough, and then think
about adding more hooks to catch anything that is missing.
