[LLVMdev] Why llvm-gcc? Another beginner's question.

What is the reason for llvm-gcc? Will regular gcc work (except for the
releases that are broken, of course)? Does llvm in any way depend on
features of llvm-gcc instead of gcc?
Or is it optional? Was it conceived to give llvm itself a through
shakedown? Is it there just in case you really want llvm code in some
form from a C program? Is such llvm code necessary for some kind of use
-- might it be that that a compiler that uses llvm can only link with
ofher llvm-generated code?
