Seems a good project to try out, but I recently discovered that LLD is
speedy and stable on huge projects. It could also be a blocker for some
due to lack of LTO support.

- gold for GCC+LTO bytecode
- lld for pretty much anything else

For now LLD only supports Itanium or plain C mangled names, but I'm
going to soon add a patch to LLD to make it use of the D demangler and
print pritty names for D symbols :)
