Moving to other compiler than SS would make sense if Oracle started
something nasty, like treating for its use, messing up with legal
stuff and licence etc. But they probably can only restrict for updates
to newer versions. Personally I think there is no need to hurry up
digging these topics. Illumos also will be on SS for a while and this
is smart decision. Later, when distro is stable and core is fine, then
it would be *nice* to detach from SS.

Kind regards, BM

Things, that are stupid at the beginning, rarely ends up wisely.
