You were the latest person to ask for a way of using an out of tree 
version of clang (distro, 3rd party, or otherwise native), but by no 
means were you the first person to propose the idea. Were I to attribute 
the idea to the first person who wanted to use an external clang I'd 
have to go back over the last year of email to find out who first asked 
for it.

Using an external clang only just became viable since the release of 
LLVM 3.3 which is why I thought it was finally time to implement this 
feature (and found some time to actually do it).
