Up until now the thread has been about “formatting”.  You suggested renaming every variable in the project!

Well to turn this around, why is llvm maintaining a schism with the rest of the C++ world?  That is, lld (and probably lldb) is more like all the other C++ conventions in the world than llvm is.  If llvm had conventions like every other convention, it would be easier for outside developers to contribute to llvm and improve the "greater good".
