I’m not arguing that certain people using particular standards could consider LLVM bloated and I’m certainly not going to argue that by certain standards C++ could be considered bloated. But for users of LLVM, be it via clang or Zig cc or GHC, it seems to work just fine. Are your complaints from the perspective of a compiler dev (or a general dev who wants to be able to more easily open up and tune a compiler) or are they just as a user? Also, for native binary compilation of performance sensitive applications, how many options are there in common use for the major languages? Your opinion seems pretty severe, so I’m just trying to see why that is.
