Any chance that this plugin could work in KDevelop with only minor changes?

KDevelop's C/C++ parser is also based on clang, but depends on the project manager to provide the compiler arguments which means you get good parsing with cmake-based projects, so-so parsing with QMake projects, and hit-and-miss parsing with all other kinds of projects I have ever worked with. That includes autoconf-based projects. Having an optional alternative parser can't hurt, esp. if it can survive crashes in libclang!

If this lspclient already being included in release tarballs?
