Sounds good.  For the LLVM side change, please a list of destinations for the new header file structure and the class renamings you want to do.  I'd really prefer things to move *once* to their final location, not keep dancing around to different locations if we change our minds and discuss things :)

I'm happy to let the clang folks figure out the best way to handle this.  As a small request if this sort of thing happens again (and not *that* big of a deal), it would have been nice if your original email was two different emails sent to llvmdev and cfe-dev for the halves of the proposal relevant to each community - instead of cross posting them both.  If nothing else, it's a pain for list moderation :)
