Requiring target maintainers to interact with several different
upstream projects to keep their port in gcc in shape just doesn't
scale.  There's no such requirement for boehm-gc, libffi, libgo,
classpath, but instead people directly involved in those projects (or
the upstream maintainers themselves) act as liaisons between gcc and
their project, removing that burden.  Just libsanitizer is the odd man
out here.
