BTW, Kadir noticed today that clangd is already packaged in clang-tools
package and available in the new Ubuntu distributions, see:

(It's also there in clang-tools-5 and clang-tools-6)

It's named /usr/bin/clangd-7, though. Would be nice to have a
/usr/bin/clangd symlink pointing to one of the "versioned" binaries
