The problem comes when different people consider "core" different projects. :)

We're always reviewing the projects and we do split them when people
agree it's needed.

Examples are the libunwind coming out of Compiler-RT, and the recent
discussion to do the same with the sanitizers and others. This is not
just about preference, but it's about cross dependency, and the only
sane way we can cross-build to multiple targets.
