actually i originally wanted to use clang/llvm as the basis for my
compiler based work, way back in 2009. it's not a coincidence that
a bit later i could contribute all that code to make clang able to
compile linux. while for practical reasons my interests had shifted
to gcc afterwards, i still have an interest in revitalizing my work
on the clang/llvm side so if you can/want to, feel free to share your
work and i'll help bring it into shape. i'm also only a humble student
of llvm internals so any comparative work such as ports of existing
gcc plugins would be of tremendous help in getting familiar with how
the clang/llvm side of the world works.
