We don't even know whether libcc1 provides any features useful for an
IDE, including information that could be used fro completion.

We also don't know what is the final verdict on having GCC emit tree

I'd expect a person who is motivated to work on these features, if we
have such a person among us, to be on top of those two issues, as well
as many others.

But I agree: it's not a technical problem.  It's a problem of being
motivated enough to overcome such obstacles.
