Does CPython code compiled with clang runs faster than gcc?

Why did you chose clang? Any benchmarks? Any benefits?

Clang is sometimes favored over gcc for its non-GPL license; I believe the FreeBSD project sees this as an important issue.

In general, the more C compilers a piece of C code compiles on, the fewer bugs are left in it, because different C compilers tend to catch different problems - even with cranked up warnings.
