This will preclude omitting the ObjC ARC analysis passes from your build of LLVM if you don't care about them, but considering the number of dead-by-default passes in LLVM, this really doesn't seem like a significant concern. It also separates the language-specific bits a bit, but I'd rather have things correctly grouped by analysis and transform.
Makes sense to me too.
