Hehe. :) It would be really nice to support C++, since clang does
support bool in C++ already. I think this just amounts to wrapping
the #defines with "#ifndef __cplusplus".

Please use the MIT license instead of the LLVM license for the
header. There was some discussion of this a couple months ago, here
are some links:

I'll see what I can do. Does anyone know a good way to find a path
relative to the executable? Ideally I'd like to have "make install"
install a file system like:
and have the build tree look like (note the similarity :) :
The best way I know that avoids having to hard code the prefix into
the executable is by making clang search the "../include/clang" path
from its executable. Is there a good way to do this?
