The few million users of Clang that I deal with never invoke the compiler directly from the command line.  Most of them probably don’t know how to.  The use the compiler from an IDE.  That can, however, look at a build log and see that a crash report was generated for them, including a shell script that can be provided in a bug report that reruns the compiler with the correct arguments to reproduce the crash.
