I share this fear. In fact - and I would love to be proven wrong about
this - I think that not having support for incrementally re-parsing a 
translation unit (the way CDT incrementally re-parses a translation 
unit by only re-parsing the file, be that the source file or a header 
file, that changed) is a significant weakness of clang insofar as it 
aims to be a tool that is meant to be integrated into IDE's.
