It depends on whether we think the installation is for end-users of Clang or for developers who want to work on Clang or Clang-based tools. I tend to think that we should favor for former, and only install the base compiler (clang, clang++, support headers and support libraries). If we want to have a "developer mode" that installs everything else, that's fine.
