Subject: future of compiler wrappers

It came up again today on #musl that gratuitous use of musl-gcc was
breaking something (this time, ppc and mips toolchains that were
already musl-targeting but where the musl-gcc specs broke things), and
I expressed a sentiment that the compiler wrapper scripts tend to
reflect badly on musl, and that I'd really rather not keep maintaining
them but pass maintainership of them off to someone else as a separate
project for users who still want to use them. Would anyone be
particularly upset to see them go from the main musl repo/releases,
and is anyone interested in maintaining them out-of-tree separately
from musl?
