Hi Bill,

We were discussing exactly that this week. With Clang inside LLVM's
tree, it's hard for us to create separate (internal) products for
them, so we can build and test them separately (EDG+LLVM against
Clang+LLVM). But I'm not sure we're the most common types of users...

I believe the Debian package for Clang is separate from LLVM, which
makes sense, but that might be hard to produce, given that they're too
tightly coupled... Debian maintainers would know more... ;)
