There's some more work needed to get there, but yes, the basics for that
are there now. It'd perhaps be doable with threads now, but it's not
clear we want that... We probably could build it with processes too -
it'd require some memory management fun, but it's doable.

Pretty unlikely - they're half yearly releases, and come out on a
somewhat regular schedule. They've moved a few weeks but not more. And
even if they did - having a few #ifdefs for LLVM 12 would be ok anyway.
