LLVM/CLANG is great conceptually, but many FOSS people already used and support GCC and Sun Studio as the formal compilers. I think people can use what they want to compile programs and build packages - but standing with
the "well known and supported" tools is a 'safer' concept.
Guess it leads us to old debates about this...
