That tool was an early one-off that I used to port some code, but it was
just enough to port that code. It shouldn't be too hard to code something
up that works for lld (it would need to use clang-modernize's 2-phase code
transformation stuff).
cc'ing Alex & Benjamin, who afaik have thought a bit about how to get this
stuff to work with clang-tidy.

On a different note:
My favorite feature of Phabricator: if you look at a file in blame mode,
there are little "<<" next to the revision, which lets you jump to the file
"past that revision". This lets one quickly browse to the right point for
what one is looking for, making naming or formatting changes less
