[Frama-c-discuss] Points-to analysis

I notice that Cil includes an inter-procedural points-to analysis which
I've found quite useful. I would like to make use of the results of the
analysis in a Frama-C plugin that I am writing, but the module isn't
included in the Frama-C version of Cil. 

I prefer not to use the value analysis plugin in this case, as it is
significantly slower and reports large quantities of dead code (mostly
due to variables that should be declared volatile).

Has the points-to analysis been excluded for a particular reason, and
could it be re-incorporated? Or is there something already in Frama-C
that does the same job? Or would it be better to port it to a proper
Frama-C plugin? I may do this myself if there is general interest in it.
