I would assume that everybody who wants to compile your package with
LLVM can simply configure the build with "--ghc-option=-fllvm", no?

A Cabal flag for the same purpose might make sense, IMHO, if there are
other build parameters that change when compiling with LLVM (like CPP
defines, etc.), but it's my understanding that this is not the case?

Take care,
