(N.B. G++ is the /front-end/, architecture-specific code generators
are the /back-end/)
I don't know if anyone's working on them yet, but they do rely on
compiler support and there are of course plans to implement them
The usual answer is they'll be implemented sooner if someone helps and
does the work.
