Absolutely. Especially since it's a necessary step towards unit testing

I like the idea of making the intermediate representations more
streamable. But I think this task should also involve creating
separate front-end and middle-end modules, as then there can be a
clear distinction of what IR is an input to a module and what IR is
output from a module(including a more specific structure to each IR).
This would give a pipeline structure to GCC. I don't know how much of
this can be achieved via GSoc, but I would still like to give it a
try. Any interested mentors? Thanks.
Would it make sense for someone to pick this
up where it was left off?
