You cannot accuse Grigori/Dorit of Clang/LLVM advocacy. He is
retransmitting other people's feedback on perceived GCC problems. I
think knowing how many people are strongly unsatisfied with GCC can
help to take some future decisions, like moving to C++.

GCC is better than Clang/LLVM in many aspects but, like it or not, the
opposite is also true, and we should learn from those aspects what we
can, take what is good and drop what is bad. [1]

Otherwise, as Ian said in another topic [2]: "I have a different fear:
