Subject RE: [arch] VM Candidate : JikesRVM http://jikesrvm.sourceforge.net/

If the gcc backend (VM point of view)/frontend (gcc point of view) is a
separate program then this GPL obligation only applies to it, not the client
of the backend...

This could also be an intermediate solution. (have something that works with
a well defined back-end in GPL, rewrite it in apache license and enhance it

Sure it does, we would be writing just a front-end. Which in case is not an 
option for Harmony, since such code must be GPL. 

Does anybody know if GCC allows such a thing?
