[m-dev.] ilc grade

Is anyone still using the ilc grade?  Can I kill it yet?

Currently the `--il' and `--target il' options select the `ilc' grade,
which uses a low-level data representation, rather than the preferred
`il' grade, which uses a high-level data representation. 
This is undesirable and potentially confusing, especially to new users.
So I would like to make `--il' and `--target il' imply `--high-level-data',
and stop supporting the `ilc' grade.

Any objections?
