I disagree. If every other criteria is met, I don't see that as a blocking
issue, mostly because that's not a "fault" of the tree-ssa project and it
would be unfair to hold them up while that work is being done.
At some point in the not too distant future, the Ada front end will handle
function-at-a-time and then converting it to using tree-ssa might be
something that the tree-ssa folks can either do or help with, but I don't see
this is a major timing issue: even if we had one release of GCC (say 3.5)
that didn't support Ada, it wouldn't be fatal and should not hold up tree-ssa
if it were ready before the Ada conversion was done.
