It would be interesting to measure (somehow ;-) whether that "Emacs
leverage" is enough to preserve GCC's importance. I mean, if using the
clang libraries allows much powerful, developer-friendly environments
for C/C++ programmers, do we think that a significant number of them
will still choose GCC because of Emacs? If the answer is "yes",
Richard's position strenghtens GCC without prejudice for Emacs. If the
answer is "not", that position hurts Emacs without helping GCC.
