Sam and Jeremiah's toolchain proposal would be a big step in the direction
of making the CDT a flexible, universal C/C++ IDE, which is one of the
major CDT goals, isn't it?  It would help us support the many C and C++
toolchains we use and should be attractive to others in the same situation.
Another important aspect is multiple toolchains per project since the same
source code is often compiled with a host and a target toolchain.
