Much better to fix the problem properly now than to rely on future work

I agree with this. We have a very awkward situation right now with lots 
of local hacks in our version of gcc that in an ideal world we would not 
replicate with clang; particularly considering the much lower barrier to 
entry when it comes to contributing things back.
