            Bug ID: 16614
           Summary: Template type diffing should be applied to
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: C++

I don't think there's any reason not to apply the convenience of type diffing
to non-templates such as:

void func(int*);

int main() {
  const int i = 3;

We produce a fairly specific diagnostic: "1st argument ('const int *') would
lose const qualifier", but I think the type diffing might actually be less
special-case and more helpful here ("'<const >int *' v 'int *'")

In the second case we just say "no known conversion from 'int' to 'int *' for
1st argument" - again, highlighting the '*' could be helpful with more deeply
nested types/names/diagnostics.
