I understood it only disallowed complaining about breaking changes without a deprecation cycle :)

I'm sorry I didn't realize you were away. If you have examples of how subclassing this class (and not just CCompiler) is useful and does something that can't be done through the existing interface, then we'll have something to discuss. From past experiences, I now prefer to default to "disallow" inheritance by default, as it isn't a breaking change to allow it again in the future but you can't go the other way.
