Two major factors are compatibility with a broad range of platforms (our
toolchain is already being used by developers on Linux, macOS, Windows) and
permissive license (our goal is to provide a permissively licensed,
self-contained toolchain with a complete set of binary tools that support

We are also thinking about some potential future extensions that would make
sense for the LLVM implementation. For example, we are planning on adopting
GSYM as the symbolization format and we would like to support GSYM in
debuginfod in the future.
