Where should we put the creativity to though?

The highest level of creativity is to do both

We only have a limited amount of manpower, so we have to prioritize. If we stick to GCC we have to fix a lot of compiler incompatibilities before even attempting anything new, let alone having to drag some vey legacy language features along. The main point of moving to clang only is to liberate those manpower from fixing those incompatibilities and put them into creating something new.

Please count me as manpower you loose by deprecating GCC (even if I contribute only indirectly through my project mySTEP). So this is not a simple reprioritization.
