Speaking of which: Is it Policy or just habit to use GCC over Clang?

I ask because doxygen (and a very few others) links against 
libclang1-3.5 "where available" according to the changelog, pulling in 
more than 100M on systems using doxygen.  libllvm3.5 is also used for 
another few, including mesa.
