My recollection is that we hoped to do that after GCC 5 stage 1 closed
(to avoid breaking people's development branchs), and I think I got
distracted by other things (probably the jit).  


I'm working on a big revamp of diagnostics (underlined ranges, fixit
hints, etc) that I hope to get in for GCC 6 stage 1 and am trying to
focus on that right now.

If you think it's still worth doing the gimple -> gimple * conversion
(presumably for immediately after close of stage 1), I can try out my
scripts then.
