I intend to differ, but the success will depend on how well I'm
going to understand the GCC front-end API (assuming that the
work is accepted by the university supervisor in the first place).

So if anyone has some code for this GCC project already, it is due
time to shout out now :). 

Anyway, I assume it would be a good idea to use the Mono metadata
library (i.e. mono_assembly_open and c:o) in the frontend, right?
