I did get that working, but I was not of fan that method. I'd rather
use the llvm::Registry to load the module. As such I don't want to try
and land the feature in a state which I'd want to remove later (but
wouldn't be able to for backwards compatability reasons).
If I don't figure this out and no one else wants to contribute I would
consider using clang SA approach.
