Same policy for third-party libraries: we work with the latest, unless that 
release happened too late in our own release cycle.

But where do we get LLVM from on a Mac? Is it from Apple? If so, we may need 
to keep things working with an old, patched version, in addition to the 
latest. Or we require an upgrade with Homebrew.
