Clang already does this sort of thing, but the matching code is
autogenerated by TableGen.  For example, take a look at
tools/clang/include/clang/AST/CommentCommandInfo.inc in the build

It might sound sensible to code the switch() for OMP clauses by hand
just because there are only a few of them.  But OTOH, it will create a
possibly unwanted precedent of hardcoding where we have the
infrastructure to autogenerate code.
