I don't see how runtimes is going either for- or against- the monorepo
stuff. We really need a model like runtimes/ rather than a model like
projects/ going forward regardless of where you find the code. This is
necessary if we want to build cross-compiled compiler-rt libraries in
any sort of sane way.
