[cfe-dev] Code completion: remove type scopes?

I'm experimenting with how completions are displayed in clangd, and trying
to reduce the noise, particularly for templates.

e.g. this example
  std::vector<int> X;
currently produces
  void push_back(std::vector<int, std::allocator<int> >::value_type &&__x)
and i'd prefer
  void push_back(value_type &&__x)

I can get this by enabling PrintingPolicy.SuppressScope in SemaCodeComplete.
My initial thought was just to do this locally in clangd, but maybe:
 - there are known cases where this falls down terribly
 - this is just better and we should turn it on for other users (xcode?) too

The global change only breaks a few tests, in the obvious way: either a
return type or parameter of a completion is no longer qualified.

(There are other things that are noisy here -- int would be better than
value_type -- but that's a different question)

Cheers, Sam
