As opposed to, say, the upstream developers who don't care about
missing features in clang, which doesn't provide a traditional cpp at

If using tradcpp conditionally, not affect to gcc users.
I said first `why not conditionally?'.
You can claim to upstream (or clang) developer about if using clang,
but for tradcpp, you will probably get the answer `why using such poor cpp?'.

Anyhow, nobody upstream particularly maintains imake or anything that
uses imake any more than they absolutely have to. If there's a
problem, best to just rip it out entirely.

As already I said, "x11/libX11, x11/libXext, x11/libXt,...", I cannot find that
imake is used by them.
