To proceed with clang ast base import I suggest to open a related bug
with severity 'wishlist' containing an abstract what you want to do.
>From writing the recent test case I think it is required to:
1. be able to setup an include file list to let the parser find related
header files
2. setup language options (which c++ standard, additional options, may
be later using a user dialog)
3. setup preprocesser (default and custom defines: may be it is possible
to extract them later from a present build system)
4. Inspect umbrello source how to add a clang based c++ importer.
5. Fork and try to implement a clang
based c++ import Implementation
6. Until the clang based parser is ready it is required to add it as an
c++ import alternative to the gui

A good starting point may be to extend the present test case to get more
in contact with clang api.

testcase related BTW: git master got two new commits:
- The llvm test cases are now command line application on Windows
supported stdout and stderr
- testcase classes and files follows common umbrello style
