What does it matter whether clang fosters non-free software if clang *also*
fosters free software? Indeed, non-free software inspires a lot of free

Apparently, gcc isn't fostering much of anything, except for a desire to
replace it with llvm/clang.

Where there is the least friction, there is the most freedom.
