It's been around a decade before that.  It's not like making Clang/LLVM
irrelevant is still on our table.  That would have been about five years

In my book, more harm has been done by making volunteers give up in
disgust on doing useful work on Emacs, GCC, and their integration.

At any rate, it stresses my point that we don't have enough Richard to
reasonably cover all of GNU's decision-making needs without some hard
and fast rules.

And to me some hard and fast rules for interoperation seem feasible:
after all, we can hardly "defend" ourselves against software that is
licensed in GPL-compatible ways.  Any measure against such software will
equally well keep GPLed/GNU software at bay.
