I can't speak for its use in Qt Creator, but some weeks back I tried to use 
clang directly to create a parse tree for one of the C++ modules in my project 
in the hopes of being able to use it to detect scope changes and to identify 
other elements for something I was writing 

It took clang /almost//10 minutes/ to parse one file.

Needless to say, I abandoned that approach and instead wrote a small Python 
script that achieved the desired results in just hundreds of milliseconds.
