I believe that in an ecosystem where we want to be able to evolve and innovate, like the LLVM ecosystem, this prevents code reuse, modularity, and future innovation. This is just unacceptable technical debt.
Again we had this debate about lld, but this is just another opportunity to express another strong disagreement with what's going on in lld.
