I am trying to make gpc work with gpc 3.1.1. Currently gpc1 
compiles and links (I omitted gcpp, runtime and the 'gpc' driver). 
About 80% of testsuite works, but the remaining bugs still 
make compiler unuseable:
 -- gcp1 crashes trying to use gpc unit 
 -- sometimes arrays and records are mislayed
 -- record layout functions complain about function
    declarations in objects.
Of course, a bunch of minor bugs also shows up.

I have a few questions about getting my work into mainline:
-- is there anybody working on the same thing (the disscusion few 
   months ago suggested that nobody)? 
-- should I try to resolve remaning bugs before I submit a patch?
-- is gpc supposed to compile with other C compilers or only with gcc?
More specific questions will follow (I spent last week offline).
