One thing to add would be unit testing, i.e. to be able to feed
specific input to parts of the compiler (like optimization passes),
dump the output and check the outcome.

Like one could (in theory) add GENERIC, GIMPLE and RTL front- and
back-ends to the
current GCC infrastructure.  Of course these IL are all not complete,
but one could work
around this.
