I know nothing about how GCC maintainers do their work. Can you 
explain why they have accepted a D front-end but refuse a change 
like that? Are they believing that D is a kind of re-syntaxed 
C/C++ that requires zero back-end changes?

Are LLVM developers sharing the same opinions? In the LLVM blog I 
have read plenty about small but significant changes in LLVM 
needed to implement an efficient back-end for GHC (the main 
Haskell compiler), so are LLVM developers different and more 
gentle than the GCC devs?

Thank you for your answers,
