I don't have performance numbers to share. Are there any specific
benchmarks you'd be interested in seeing? Build time typically
increases with LTO and in my experience, binary size tends to increase
by ~10-15% as well.

I believe LLVMgold doesn't know how to deal with an archive of LLVM IR
files, but I can certainly use thin archives as an index and extract
the path names for linking. I'll look into it.
