Fortunately with clang we'll have some good data points from FreeBSD's
ongoing integration, and can hopefully understand what needs to be
addressed if we were to decide to adopt it. We'll also have to see
what direction Illumos takes - there's no point in increasing the
number of compilers we'd have to support at once.
