Adding a test for that in lldb is fine. If we're relying on some behavior we want to make sure it doesn't change without us noticing. However, I don't think we should make any special allowments for people using lldb with older versions of llvm. It sends the wrong message. Making this work in this case is easy enough, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. We have made many changes in the past where we add/modify/extend an llvm interface to make it work for our needs, and then almost immediately start using it in lldb (the last example of that is the switch to llvm path handling functions in FileSpec, if anyone tries use that with a older version of llvm, he'll get a bunch of errors). We're a single project with a single release schedule (I know a lot don't follow the official release schedule, but then they should at least cut from the same trunk revision; all the people that I know about do just that) and we don't support mixing revisions.  If anyone tries to do things differently, he's on his own. If he's lucky, he'll get a build error. If not, he gets to track down subtle behavior differences.
