    as you can see the proposal "make the main zig executable no longer depend on LLVM, LLD, and Clang libraries" has "accepted" status, but that doesn't mean you can't use Clang/LLVM/LLD to compile zig/C/C++ via the zig command. In the comment the link goes directly to Andrew explains that the usecases that require Clang ... are still covered by the zig build system. (Everybody was very worried first in that GitHub issue, but was relieved after reading the clarification. To be fair, that the build system could take over this functionality wasn't known from the start, so it was a very productive discussion.)
