pcc might happen when people spend enough time making it work.

You have little ideas how many hours were sunk in the gcc4 update. And that's a comparatively small amount of time compared to what would be needed to get pcc into shape.

Yeah, pcc is all cool and that, but unless a lot of actual people with madz programming skills jump in and start coding, it won't happen anytime in the near future.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
