We implemented it because we have a use case :) For example, we have a
server-based build system at Google that we want to query, where the
compilation database implementation depends on internal system
libraries that we cannot open source (mainly because it's not written
in a generic enough way). We have developers working in open source
land, and inside Google land, and we want to have one set of tools
that "just works".
