Writing a front end in C++ would make that process:
Stage0: any 'ol C compiler -> gcc<c, c++>
Stage1: gcc<c, c++> + new_frontend -> gcc<c, c++, New>
Stage2: gcc<c, c++, New> -> presumably_finished_compiler
Stage3: presumably_finished_compiler -> finished_compiler
Isnt this possible by having a C++ compiler already installed on the system
and enabling the C++ as a langauge to be built?
Compare Stage2 with Stage3, if same; then done; else punt!
