    As jsg@ mentioned, the graphics stack is tied to LLVM. So yes, we will be on the LLVM train, and will be pulled along.

    I remember that there was a discussion not to include LLVM Versions > 8 due to licensing constraints. Are the benefits of using a newer LLVM version greater than the licensing topic or is there another reason?

      It looks like there are two available compilers with state-of-the-art hardware support. In terms of licenses, it is matter of choosing between Apache-2 of GPL-3, even if the OpenBSD project has been historically against both.
