Thanks George,

As Florian stated, my work on the optimiser overhaul has been rejected 
because of how intertwined it is, along with some elements of 'code 
smell', but there's plenty to salvage and he hasn't slammed the door on 
the concept.  I'm still learning to use git and patches, especially with 
splitting up changes.  For example, if I have changes in separate files 
that I want to split up, how might one go about it without manually 
modiying the patch files? (As an easy example, I split up the uComplex 
patches into two... one with the alignment and vectorcall changes, and 
the other with the "const" modifier in the parameters).

I haven't heard anything regarding the node semantic pass yet.
