> Hi Paval ... Before starting the development of this whole feature, we had submitted the full proposal to lldb dev list 1.5 years ago. During the discussions, it was proposed to keep the external dependency outside LLDB (i.e. not to be bundled in liblldb shared library). The External dependency required for this tool is not and will never be a part of lldb repository. Users who are interested to use this tool, will download this external dependency separately.

Yes I remember that. But, as you say, that was 1.5 years ago, and we haven't heard anything since. Honestly, I had assumed you abandoned that work until you reappeared last month. :)
So I think it's worth updating that thread, as new things may have come up since then (for example, the decision whether to merge the intel stuff into a single library).
