I tend to be quite happy with the idea of dragonegg being a good GCC plugin, since it is a good illustration of the plugin feature. What exactly is wrong with the approach of keeping dragonegg as a GCC plugin? In principle, I like it very much. (I admit I did not compile dragonegg, so maybe there are issues in using it as a plugin). And I could imagine that the difference in the licenses and the copyright owners between DragonEgg & GCC might make the merging legally difficult, but of course I am not a lawyer and know nothing about these issues.
