    For anybody wondering, GWP stands for Google-wide Profiling.
    The README suggests –at least to me– that Bazel is needed only to build GWPSan itself and users just link the static library into their programs or inject the dynamic library with LD_PRELOAD. If my understanding is right and distros shipped GWPSan as they do other sanitizers, developers could use GWPSan without even being aware of Bazel.
