            Bug ID: 20000
           Summary: Clang needs a --tell-me-a-story flag
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

Often times, users are not satisfied with single line diagnostic messages. 
People desire a longer narrative, something which engages them on a more
literary level.  To this end, I propose adding --tell-me-a-story flag to Clang
which will cause Clang to enter story mode and enthrall users with majestic
tales involving their favorite language constructs.  For example:

$ clang --tell-me-a-story
Once upon a time, a young string literal was told that he could be anything
when he grew up.  He didn't much like being a string literal and wanted very
much to be a bool instead.  So he journeyed far and wide, looking for the
perfect bit of code.  Eventually, he came to be inside an if-statement.  And
thus, "his wish" became true.
