Given how TargetProperties::TargetProperties() is implemented, I could imagine we could just make the properties members of the class, we just need some way to generate a for-each-property loop to handle the initialization. I'll think about this some more.

We do want to avoid static initializers that happen automatically via the C++ global constructor chain, but we have the class static lldb_pricvate::*::Initialize() and that would be a perfect place to place these property definitions. I like Pavel's templated approach as well. I do second that it would be nice to be able to debug. I really dislike the .def file stuff in LLVM code. Although it is easy to maintain, you can't look at the code and figure anything out, you must preprocess the file for many things just to see what it is. I wouldn't mind it if we generated the source file from a .def file and then checked that file in so we can actually read the code...
