1) How important is Donn Terry's -fnative-struct feature.  Merging his
patchset from 2.95 into 3.0 branch is easy.  Merging into 3.1 takes a bit
more work, with change to table-driven attributes, but getting there. 

2) How important is fastcall calling convention to cygwin apps.  I have
been working with Eric Kohl on a patchset that he is keen to get into mingw
binaries. ReactOS project needs them for building MS-compat device drivers.
 They involve changes in binutils (as, dlltool, ld) as well as gcc.  These
are still WIP
