After reading through the responses, I think that it makes sense to postpone this for a couple weeks. I'll update the schedule.

I'd like to reiterate that we do not normally push back releases for new features. However, Clang is on the verge of hitting a major milestone and I'll make an exception in this case. I do not see any negatives to waiting a couple extra weeks.
