"Do not implicitly run this for now; it breaks the build" I made that 
specific plugin opt-in, you need to explicitly "make 
COMPILER_PLUGIN_TOOL=getimplementationname" to enable it (see 

I did that for two reasons:  For one, the plugin apparently does not 
work properly yet, see 
for an example of a broken tinderbox build.  For another, I understand 
that the generated data needs to be processed further (uploaded 
somewhere), so it is probably faster and more convenient to only do this 
when explicitly requested, and not routinely on every build (for people 
routinely building with Clang plugins enabled).
