These are more likely to be LLVM plugins than clang plugins.  We already have a mechanism for optimisation plugins to automatically insert themselves into the optimiser chain - I'm using this for some Objective-C optimisations.  

These would be better loaded from a config file by the LLVM plugin loader, because there is no sensible way for clang to pass optimisation plugins to the linker for LTO.
