Hey @pnkfelix, #71006, the backward dataflow PR, is waiting on your review. Will you get to it anytime soon? Jonas Schievink would like to use it for a more robust liveness analysis to implement NRVO, and I'd like to do better dead-code elimination.

One thing I wanted to play with is a borrow-aware liveness analysis, which is also used by the generator transform, and your dataflow framework changes to support backwards dataflow would help making that simpler, so I'm looking forward to that

eddyb has signed off in the abstract if that helps. There's a small hack to work around shortcomings of BodyAndCache that can be removed #71044 is merged. It's currently in the bors queue.

I’m trying to juggle a lot of stuff. If I don’t get to it by Thursday then we will delegate to someone else, okay?

Sounds good! Thanks.
