Yeah, I tried something like that, but I didn't get it to work
properly.  I will look at it again to see if I can get the right
command-line.  It's been a couple years since I worked on clang-tidy
and some of my clang-fu has decayed away.  If I can find a pattern that
works, I'll enhance the helper script to support this directly.

Thanks for the pointer.
