It may be usable, but noone has opened a working branch and tried to implement
this until now.
Umbrello always used a copy of the kdevelop c++ parser in the past and it seem
to be the easiest to also reuse the clang based c++ language plugin from
kdevelop (see

Some of the Issues which need to be solved are:
1. umbrello needs to be refactored for running kdevelop clang language plugin
2. clang AST is completly different from kdevelop's c++ parser AST, which
requires a rewrite of the AST to uml model binding (currently cpp2uml.cpp)
3. The recently used parser is very tolerant against incomplete c++ code, which
is not the case for clang, which needs to be called similar to a compiler
building the related source code. Incomplete code may come from missing include
pathes or defines only available inside the build system of the imported source
code files. This may require to run the parser similar to the coverity scan
tools, which runs on top of a configured build system.
