Ah, that makes sense. I can duplicate that.

Clang is pretty heavyweight for a recommends. For me it was going to
install another 300+ MB of disk space.  That would be OK if most people
were installing company for C++ development, but I guess that's not

We could certainly add a suggests (for what little that is worth) or
perhaps disable company-clang by default.
