Where in the discussions did we mention that we do not want a LLVM 
backend? We even had a LLVM branch some time ago! The only point is that 
a LLVM backend will be only one backend among the others unlike in the 
new Delphi compiler. We are not going to give up our existing backends!

Also this point is mentioned under "Planned for later versions". This 
does not mean the next (major) version, nor necessarily the one after 
it, but some version after the next one depending on when someone is 
going to work on it.

So in summary: no need to remove that point from the list...
