Submission + - GCC 5 could be modular like LLVM (

ndogg writes: "There are talks underway by the GCC developers that GCC 5.0 could be modularized like LLVM, and its different components be split up, and put into libraries. Doing so would be a massive undertaking (some saying it's probably practically impossible), which would mean that GCC 5.0 release would be very long in the making. There would be likely sacrifices to performance, and optimizations during the process."
