Calling that a bikeshed misses the point of bikesheds. :-)

I can't imagine that anyone is arguing for switching the default compiler to 
clang any time soon.  The goal of the current exercise is to provide 
infrastructure and increase exposure.  An entirely seperate set of decisions 
will be required to (perhaps) throw the following switches:

- Make clang the default bootstrapping compiler (i.e., build kernel+world with
   it) on supported architectures.

- Make clang the default ports build compiler.

- Install clang as cc.
