If someone got the patches up to date for the trunk and fixed the minor issues involved in the last review (both of which look pretty simple), what are the chances of getting it reviewed for 3.6? (I realize this is probably a better question for the issue tracker or the -dev list than buried in the middle of a barely-relevant -ideas thread, but I'm on my phone here, and you brought it up.:)

I'm still interested in the underlying ideas, and while it's always
possible to get completely surprised by life's twists and turns, I'm
optimistic I'd be able to find the time to provide feedback on it
myself for 3.6, and hopefully encourage other folks with experience
with the compiler internals to review it as well.
