When we add new toolchains for languages other than C++, then we should make that explicit by e.g. adding a tag for the language the tool chain supports. We would also need to select the correct language with the ToolChainKitInformation.

When we do that, then we need to make sure not to break existing code. That implicitly assumes all toolchains to be for C++ after all. Changing assumptions like that tends to introduce regressions, so we need to make sure we have enough time to iron out those after introducing such a change.

That is all I wanted to say.
