Are there any implementations of these R&D papers in popular compilers
(apart of Visual Studio, which is obviously not interesting in this

Isn't it true that all the packages that use clang for completion save
the buffer whenever completion is required?  At least the one I tried
did just that, which sounds an awful design decision to me.  Since
