Hmmm, can you explain a bit more about why you need this? By default, Clang (the application) leaks memory on shutdown (why free a whole bunch of memory only to terminate, which frees the memory for you?). So it surprises me that we'd need a *driver* option for this because the driver is how you execute clang itself (rather than using Clang as a library, which is why we have the cc1 option). So, to me, this doesn't feel strongly motivated, but I might be misunderstanding the problem you're trying to solve.
