We totally understand the magnitude of this undertaking :)

Point 2 is why, if it is done, it shouldn't be a Google project.

The very point of my first email in this thread was to ask if this can be
made part of the LLVM project, developed and maintained by the LLVM

If there can be a C++ standard library and runtime implementation as part
of the LLVM project, I do not see a reason why there cannot be a libc
implementation as part of the LLVM project.
