Apologies, I haven't seen any further discussion here or gdb-patches,
and no updates to libcc1 in a long time, so I wrongly assumed it was
stuck in the C++ issues discussed last time (e.g., trying to
work-around the non-modularity of the C++ FE instead of fixing the C++
FE directly). Interfacing with GDB could help GCC a lot to become more
modular (like libgccjit is already doing).
Also, having a list of the C++ issues you are facing (perhaps in
either wiki) may motivate people to help or at least provide ideas
that are likely to be accepted in trunk.

Perhaps adding a few "mini-projects" to
https://gcc.gnu.org/wiki/SummerOfCode that you will be willing to
mentor would attract some help (even non-GSoC).
