I am tempted to try implementing a conditional GTY,

I'm afraid that the current stage rules forbid that. Or, could such a patch
be considered as a bug fix?
Sorry, no.

I was afraid (but I am not surprised) of such a reply.
So won't spend any additional minute on patching gengtype.
So I will have to generate some additional file in MELT (containing simply the
     typedef gimple* melt_gimpleptr_t;
line) and hack the build procedure.

The plugin API was never considered stable and thus plugins have to
deal with incompatibilites as they arise.

Help with picking up the partially completed work on a stable plugin
(introspection) API
is of course welcome.

What exact functions (their name, the source files defining them) in the current GCC trunk are you referring to by your "introspection" word? Last time I checked (a few months ago) there where nothing related to that. Today, the only occurrences of introspection (in GCC trunk svn rev233268) are in Java part and in the libsanitizer.
