I wonder a little about the the OptionGroups here.  Those options don't know a-priori what command they are attached to.  It seems not unreasonable to say that if an element of an option group is invalid for one platform for command A, it will also be invalid for all other commands?  But we should think about whether this is really true.  Otherwise, we just need it to be easy for a command to insert its own validator as it adds options from the options group (which shouldn't be hard.)

The purpose of the OptionValidator is to determine, based on some arbitrary set of conditions, whether or not a command option is valid for a given debugger state.  An example of this might be to selectively disable or enable certain command options that don't apply to a particular platform.
