[llvm-dev] Why can't clang -emit-llvm when linking?

When I try to do 

clang++ main.cpp -emit-llvm

without -S, clang says that he can’t:

clang: error: -emit-llvm cannot be used when linking

why can’t it emit the IR in a complete compilation process?

Is there a particular technical reason or just to avoid confusing jobs?
