And note also that you would need to specify both "{macports-clang < 3.5}" (to handle the version the user might have selected with "port select clang") and "macports-clang-3.4 macports-clang-3.3" to handle users who have not selected clang and users who have selected a version of clang older than 3.5.

Well, I suppose the compiler_blacklist_versions portgroup could be smartened to automatically add "macports-clang-3.4 macports-clang-3.3" if you specify "{macports-clang < 3.5}".
