    Could it support a "daemon" mode?

Yes.  (Though I'm not sure how that differs, practically speaking,
from accepting commands on stdin and answering them on stdout.)

    I don't really see GCC itself doing that (at least, the last part).
    It would require quite a bit of work that might be better left to 
    third-party developers.

I hope some of the people on this list will help implement it.
I will try to ask GCC developers to develop it too.
