dotest is also a potentially fallible layer on top of the SB Api call, but
one that involves *more* behind-the-scenes code between the test and code
being tested.

An lldb-test test would consist, in its entirety, of about 10 lines of
text. I don’t see how it’s possible to beat that from a simplicity
standpoint (and you get the added bonus that the thing running the test is
known to not be flaky)
