I must admit that my rough around the edges personality may play into
this. I don't mince words and when smart people occasionally
(frequently?) do stupid things - there's a right way to say it and a
blunt way.. and then there's times when it's just a matter of
opinions.. So many people lately think LLVM is this magical panacea
that will fix all their problems.. That camp of people is growing and
any time you try to explain how craptastic it is on a whole category
of problems you're met with disbelief at best..

Maybe I'm wrong and it will "just work out in the end"..
