The idea I had was to get rid of the INCLUDE_IN_FRAMEWORK argument to add_lldb_executable. Since add_lldb_executable builds the binary differently when building for the framework (modifying the rpath, changing the output destination and symlinking it to your build tree's bin dir), it should be sufficient just to check for LLDB_BUILD_FRAMEWORK.

I've begun refactoring to remove `INCLUDE_IN_FRAMEWORK` but I've started thinking about some possibly negative repercussions. I'm wondering what you think of this:

`add_lldb_tool` (which invokes `add_lldb_executable`) can be used to add lldb executables that won't be included in the framework AFAICT (e.g. lldb-mi). What I was going to do was remove `INCLUDE_IN_FRAMEWORK` option so that every tool will get put into the framework and symlinked to `$BUILD_DIR/bin` when you run cmake with `LLDB_BUILD_FRAMEWORK=1`. This will mean that lldb-mi will be put in the framework if you do something like `make lldb-mi` after configuring with `LLDB_BUILD_FRAMEWORK=1`.

In that case, do you think it makes sense to keep `INCLUDE_IN_FRAMEWORK` as an option and use that to build part of the dependency tree for the lldb-framework target? Or do you think this is an unlikely enough example that it shouldn't matter?
