Package: llvm-toolchain-3.8
Severity: wishlist

As a matter of consistency with the rest of the LLVM package, and as the
release management of llvm, clang, libc++ etc is done at the same time
We should package libc++ as part of the llvm-toolchain-3.8 packaging,
as libc++ can be built in-tree.

We already have libc++ in Debian but moving it will requires some steps:
* we package both libcxx & libcxxabi at the same time
* we only support one version of libcxx on the system. If we keep the
paradigm, we should have libcxx-3.8, etc... this will probably need to
llvm-defaults (we could match what libstdc++ is doing)
