I can't help, but I'm struggling with the same thing right now.

Our tool is originally designed to act as a replacement for clang in
Make build systems, so it accepts the same command-line (plus some
additional, escaped options)

I've wanted to add compilation database support, but the way tooling
is wired it seems I need to extract compilation db and source paths
from the command-line and pass them to ClangTool::ClangTool. The
compilation db is (sort of) handled by FixedCompilationDatabase, but
it seems the source paths are assumed to be tool arguments, not Clang

Ideas welcome,
- Kim
