I like the idea of making the intermediate representations more

This would give a pipeline structure to GCC. I don't know how much of
this can be achieved via GSoc, but I would still like to give it a
try. Any interested mentors? Thanks.

Would it make sense for someone to pick this

up where it was left off?
Absolutely. Especially since it's a necessary step towards unit testing of the gimple optimizers.
