What I meant to say was that the reality of the situation is
that 90%+ of the code (by line) is probably created by paid
employees and the way things have shaken out has placed the bulk
of those on linux. So FSF gcc will have to go out of its way to
try to limit the monoculture tendencies that this will naturally
cause. The llvm project has this issue probably less for linux
than for other surviving platforms (like Solaris, etc).
