I'd say our target is c++ enthusiasts/professionals, system maintainers 
and compiler engineers

Licensing, portability, quality of codebase, standards conformance and 
hopefully performance (though I don't have benchmarks to substantiate 
this claim right now)

Based on the commit logs - how much non-Apple/general clang 
contributions does libc++ get? STL hacking isn't the sexiest project to 
contribute to generally..

STLport's last release was 2008 and I'm not sure how much potential 
could be derived from that....

I know of a few companies/projects using stdcxx, but it's probably 
better to leave this as a TODO.
