Well, there's a bit of library support for it already: global/static
constructors and destructors are supported now (which is part of

Support for things like new/delete and maybe even exceptions seems to
be possible.

Support for a full-fledged ISO standards template library seems to be
beyond the horizon, at least by now.

And yes, all other things are indeed by-products of the way gcc is
organized: the language frontends for the various compilers are
completely separated from the machine-dependent backends that actually
generate the code.  So in theory, by writing one machine backend, you
indeed get the potential of a compiler for all supported frontends,
but in practice the world is not so ideal since some degree of runtime
support is required as well, see above for C++.
