For what it is worth, I have worked on both gnu and llvm projects. IMHO
the big day to day difference is not even the new and shinny design, it
is the lesser extent of the self inflicted pain. Not having to write
boilerplate in an arcane format would go a long way in reducing the pain
in gnu projects.
