Will it still be possible to merge in objc-improvements-branch during
Stage 2? The ObjC++ front-end itself is 99% done, and the only
significant stumbling block now is the C++ data structure rewrite which
you initiated :-); I think the rewrite is a very good idea, BTW, but it
did throw me a curve...

As of now, we're in Stage 2 on the mainline.
This was scheduled for July 1st, but it made sense to delay until
3.4.1 was released.
As a reminder, Stage 2 means that major changes (the kind that would
normally be done on a branch) should not be merged in after this
point. However, less invasive changes and ehnancements are fine until
we reach Stage 3; there's no requirement that changes fix bugs or
I'm targeting September 6th for Stage 3. Stage 3 may go on for quite
some time, if the regression lists are looking long, so it would be
good to get started on fixing regressions even now.
The LNO merge is ongoing, and will continue. The LNO folks have been
kindly chopping up there stuff into digestible bits, and they should
not be penalized for that; if they had tried to check it all in at
once that would have been worse.
I'm sure there's more stuff out there that people would like to get
merged in, but the next release will already have tree-ssa and LNO, so
that's a lot of excitement already. :-)
