I didn't say it did. I said "I'd like to see ..." I have no power to
mandate anything. :) The connection in MY mind is that once we start
down the road of making the idea of "compiler/toolchain" more flexible,
it's probably a good idea to also start down the road of "ports
compiler" and "base compiler." I'm not sure I can invest the time to
work on the "clang for the base" side of it, but I am pretty sure I can
work on the "compiler for ports" side. Not to mention that I'd like to
see if the new compiler makes any difference on my newish CPU.
I'd also like to see this issue get a little more attention since it's
something that all FreeBSD users can participate in, not just those

That's just what I was looking for, thanks!
... and that's just a little bit of history repeating.
