Declare it as a goal but drop it's priority and don't waste time on
it right now?

Right; it should not be high priority now given that changing the tests in the future should be easy as long as they don't use C++. But I think it's good to keep this in mind for future releases.

Unless Anders wants to pick ATF *now* for pcc regression tests (not
sure how to priorize in that case though)

Jeremy was considering to use ATF for pcc (among other tools, such as dejagnu), but I'm not sure if he'll end up using it. However, pcc tests could (and should) be built with the host compiler for now, which supposedly is GCC and supports C++. In other words, I don't see why you'd need to build the tests with pcc itself to test pcc. As I see it, the tests will invoke pcc and/or interface with its internals directly, to check the results of the calls afterwards. And the former can be done from sh, for example.
