This import simply makes it possible to start testing clang in a more
fashion. It doesn't bless anything or make any kind of claim to the
clang for production. I for one am excited about this import and think that
kind of bold step is an enormous victory for FreeBSD. Clang is clearly the
of compiler technology and the earlier we get on board the more involvement
will have with the Clang team and everyone will reap the benefits.
