There are other use cases (e.g. for adding a backtrace to log messages) where we want to put the backtrace out in ways lldb is used to outputting information - e.g. lldb::Stream's. So I don't think it is true that "all we want to do is get a backtrace to the screen."

I would argue the reverse, that we should only be reinventing facilities in LLDB when there's a good reason to do so. In this case, I don't think being able to use a StreamString is a compelling enough reason. On the other hand, having a consistent backtrace format which supports all platforms is definitely a compelling reason to use the LLVM facility. So I do think it makes sense here.
