To produce something like this would require reading through some of the literature and open source and constructing the compiler transform pass in gcc or clang. Is gcc currently preferred for something like this? gcc is still the "official" compiler but LLVM support has come a long way. I'd recommend starting with a gcc plugin since that's what we have the most support for. If you want to do work to add LLVM plugins, that would be great too. Thanks, Laura
