I had a chat with the lead developer (Tim IIRC) at Google. There is a
certain overlap in functionality but I for one really like our
approach with many simpler tools rather than one tool to rule them
C++ isn't so hot, but that's not really important. Their FUSE idea is
Some good some bad. At this point I think a little competition is ok.
I don't think we have much overlap in hardware support right now, and
codifying+verifying registers should take more time than writing the
engine no matter which tool we're talking about.
