The client side of the protocol seems fairly easy to implement in Emacs,
so I think this is primarily a (big) task for GCC developers.  We could
implement a server for Elisp on top of bytecomp.el, but I doubt that
anybody has time/motivation for that.

I note that some Clang developers are working on a server:

So it seems likely that Clang will support the protocol long before GCC
does.  It might also have political implications if Emacs implements the
client side if Clang is the only server for C/C++.
