My bad, I wrote the email "from memory".
Engine enumeration could be documented too. Right now the doc just
says GDB=1, what about llvm and microsoft?
I am interested into bringing clang on linux in our process, for qa,
dev and post-mortems.

I do understand that this is not an API, so you might not want to
document these "internal" stuff.
But it would be nice to update  the --help output, at least it's in
the source code, not in a separate README file.

I can't stop thinking that the README should looks like
- 1 Please see "sdktool --help", big warning about changes, "we mean it" stuff.
- 2 Examples with QtC 4.4

Is it desirable?
