I wonder what this will mean for gcj?
Hopefully it will be closer integrated into the mainline, and we could see things like compiling a subset of C/ C++ / fortran to JVM bytecode. AFAIK, at the moment, gcj doesn't use all that much of the same code as the other frontends.
Another interesting area ( for mono folks) would be if this would make an IL backend easier... and maybe even enable Managed C++, ugly as it is..
