I'm not really deep enough into Clang to rewrite the whole way how clang handles different runtimes and I actually think that asking me to rewrite all that when I just wanted a single flag is a little bit too much, don't you think? This is the first Clang patch that's more than a 1-liner I ever did and it took me ages to get the options stuff working. Someone who actually is familiar with the Clang code should be able to do this much faster with less work.

Can't you just let me have this one single option and then later someone who is familiar enough with Clang can rewrite the way Clang handles different runtimes? I think it's kinda unfair that you allowed the GNUstep runtime to have so many countless options and now refuse me to have a single option unless I rewrite the whole way how Clang handles different runtimes.

Please reconsider this. Especially since this isn't even specific to my runtime, but also works with the GNUruntime. Thanks.
