I did.  I tried it, and it does work.

However, the unwinder in gcc is really only intended to be used for
exceptions.  There is libunwind, which has a general interface for
unwinding, but it hasn't much been ported.  One day if I ever have a
little time I'd like to work on it.  We will eventually use libunwind
for backtrace support in libgcj.
