[cfe-users] thinlto and c++ static initialization analysis

I am looking at trying out thinlto on our large c++ programs. We have 
had to do a bunch of careful things to make sure things get linked in 
the right order to get the static initialization to work right.

Two questions:

Will thinlto honor the command line ordering of files that we set?

In theory, with lto one could build the dependency graph of 
initializations and guarantee the correct ordering. Has anyone worked on 
this and are there any plans for this in the future?

thanks in advance,
