For what it's worth, it seems to me that "clang" as the C/C++ compiler 
is cfe+llvm, then why would it be more consistent to name it cfe-users 
than llvm-users?
Obviously since this list intends to target people using "clang" as in 
the binary and *not* clang is the "clang-cfe", I second Sean Silva on 
the name.

My 2 cents,
