We've introduced bugs in the past that would have been caught 
immediately by clang + Werror if it had been in the CI.
clang has warnings that gcc doesn't have. Apple Clang is based on older 
clang (which one?), so doesn't have all the nice warnings.

I don't know the cost of adding it to the CI, so I won't comment on the 
cost/benefit relation.
