If I implement the approach favored by Andrew Pinski and Gabriel Dos
Reis of creating a reference type node in the C++ front end, which gets
converted into a REFERENCE_TYPE node during gimplification, I'll have to
change all of the current uses of REFERENCE_TYPE in the front end.
You're agreeing with Doug that this approach isn't ideal, I guess, but
would it be acceptable? I haven't done any work yet, I just want to
figure out which direction to go in.
