[LLVMdev] Tooling support for LLVM-GCC, or CLANG?

I'm more interested in whether or not there are any projects in the works
that fuse the tools together to build a better IDE experience. I forget
which presentation it was, but one of the developers (I *think* it was the
gentleman that presented something on CLANG at the dev's conference 2008)
made a bit of a point by saying that LLVM, unlike GCC has been built from
the ground up with tooling in mind. I appreciate that the tools that ship
with LLVM use the foundation in place, however, I am curious as to whether
there are any IDE projects that are building further upon this.
