Clang-MSVC is not an open alternative without MS software. It's still using MS 
software. It's just a better compiler than MS's.

Clang-mingw and GCC-mingw are open alternatives. Both have very good 
compilers. I don't know whether either has already solved the thread_local 
problem -- if any of them have, I'd strongly recommend we switch to that and 
ban the other (note: the issue is libgcc and libcompiler-rt, not the compilers
