Going on a tangent, I know, but __attribute__((pure)) and __attribute__((const)) have been around for a long time, and are exposed in our codebase as LLVM_READONLY and LLVM_READNONE, respectively. IIRC Clang is already smart enough to take these annotations into account both for optimization and for warnings like -Wunused.
