Hi Jean-Daniel,

That's great!  BTW, the PathDiagnosticClient is an evolving interface,  
and I'm completely fine with modifying it to make the world a better  
place.  I'll make some changes to the Driver to make it easier to hook  
up different PathDiagnosticClients to AnalysisConsumer (the  
ASTConsumer that drives the different static analysis passes)  besides  
just the current HTMLDiagnostics.
