Neither was GCC.

I wrote GCC to be as modular as I knew how to do.


It is hard to tell whether you are being so literal by intention or because "you simply do not get it".  What those who embrace LLVM for its modularity value (cherish?) is that the interfaces induced by modularity are exposed, leveragable and unencumbered.  Though as a programmer you may take umbrage at the suggestion that you creation is non-modular this LLVM community could not care less how modular your design and code were / are so long as you refuse to allow that modularity to be exploited.
